Building an affordable housing community

Cover The Coast is a new initiative that aims to build a more connected, strategically aligned, and supported affordable housing community. Led by Deer Crossing the Art Farm in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Affordable Housing Society, the team is working to improve our understanding of current housing initiatives, reveal common barriers, identify areas for collective impact, and share this with the greater community.

HOME OWNERS SURVEY

Do you have space in your home or on your property (including a short-term rental) that could be utilized for long-term rental?

Is it ready for occupancy or does it require some renovation work? What is preventing you from taking the next step?  If you rent it short term, why have you chosen short term over long term?  We want to learn more.

Many Faces Of Poverty
VIRTUAL FORUMS

Cover the Coast is partnering with The Poverty Reduction Strategy Project to host three virtual forums that will bring community members together to learn about issues impacting poverty on the Sunshine Coast.  Our goal is to develop a shared vision of a healthy, caring, and fair community, and a commitment to take action and embrace changes required to address these issues.
