Prince George & Disrict Elizabeth Fry Housing Society

Housing Society

We believe that everyone deserves safe, affordable housing. The agency strives to provide housing that is conducive to a safe and respectful environment.

We currently operate 128 housing units throughout Prince George. 80 of these units are two, 40 unit complexes for lower-income families, persons with disabilities and in special circumstances, senior citizens. 11 units are for women and their children who are leaving unsafe relationships. A 36 unit apartment building provides home to low to moderate income senior citizens and people living with disabilities.

We incorporate a blend of backgrounds, income and rent levels while supporting housing along a continuum of needs. It is our belief that this strategy empowers and strengthens the community and provides the individual tenants with greater self sufficiency. The Society is committed to forming strong partnerships with our tenants. Through operating with a tenant centered approach, we acknowledge that our tenants know best what their needs are. This approach enables us to meet tenants at their place of readiness and ensures that supports and referrals are provided to assist them is succeeding with their tenancy commitments. Our participation and certification in the Crime-Free Multi-housing program further enhances the safety and well-bring of our tenants.

We ‘re also active, provincially and locally, in serving on committees and task forces that work to increase the knowledge, education and awareness of homelessness and the issues that accompany homelessness in our community.

We look forward to continuing in a leadership role to provide more housing stock and in finding creative solutions to address the housing needs within Prince George.
