The Society of Hope, true to its Mission Statement of "Providing Quality Affordable Housing" is at it again. The Board of Directors wanted to see some new family town homes constructed in the next year. Consequently, the Society was able to bring a partnership together to do just that.  BC Housing, the City of Kelowna, Vanmar Constructors and Society of Hope are building 21 new family town homes in the Glenmore Valley. The plan is to bring 16 three bedrooms to market and 5 two bedroom units to market in the autumn of 2019. There is a lot of work yet to do, but this is another step forward. The Society expresses its appreciation to all its partners that work together to bring this needed resource to Kelowna.
