The Alexandra Housing Society was incorporated in the fall of 1984 with a mandate to "provide and maintain housing for persons of low income."
The Society entered into a contractual agreement with Canada Mortgage and Housing in December 1984 to construct a 24 unit housing project providing accommodation for low and moderate income families and individuals. Alexandra place is located on East Broadway near Vancouver Tech Secondary School. The project has mixed subsidized and market-rated units.
In 1989, the Society entered into a second agreement with BC Housing Management Corporation to construct and maintain a 23-unit housing project to provide low income families with subsidized housing. This project, called the George Whiten Place is adjacent to Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House.
Since their construction, the Society has been involved in the maintenance of the two housing projects. Terra Property Management oversees the daily operations of the projects and this has been an excellent arrangement.
Meetings are held semi-monthly at Association of Neighbourhood Houses of British Columbia on Main Street. Minutes of the meetings and agendas of forthcoming meetings are available by calling (604-875-9111). The current Chair of the Society is John Halani.
