1986 Vancouver

 

In 1986, operating under the name of MCC Social Housing Society (MCCSHS), our society's first community helped to alleviate the high cost of housing in the Commercial Drive neighborhood in east Vancouver.  Charleswood Court was built as a court yard community with all doors facing into a centralized common area where tenants regularly meet and enjoy life together.  At the time MCC Housing operated under the direction of a volunteer board of directors, who were very hands on, and one paid employee.  Everything from maintenance issues to tenant relations, this small group did it all.

 

Charleswood Court is still a thriving community with 26 units and a diverse population of singles, couples, families and seniors.  An onsite management team provide care and direction while enjoying the benefits of community living.  More Than A Roof Housing has its head office located at Charleswood Court.
