Imagine a place where your rent payment builds equity, not just someone else's wealth. Imagine a vibrant community where you have a say in decisions and feel a true sense of belonging. Imagine homes that offer stability and affordability, not just dreams. With your support, Besonda Housing Society can make this vision a reality for countless British Columbians.

Since our founding Besonda has embarked on a mission to tackle the province's ever-growing housing crisis. We believe everyone deserves access to safe, secure, and affordable housing – a foundation for a better life. But the "missing middle" – individuals and families earning too much for subsidized housing, yet unable to afford market rents or ownership – often gets left behind.

Why Limited Equity Housing Co-ops?

We champion Limited Equity Housing Co-ops (LEHs) as a proven solution. With a decades-long track record across North America, LEHs offer long-term affordability through capped appreciation and non-profit land trusts. Imagine:

  • Stable housing costs: Unlike traditional models, LEHs protect residents from volatile market fluctuations, offering peace of mind.
  • Building equity: Residents own a portion of their home, gaining financial security and wealth creation over time.
  • Vibrant communities: LEHs foster a sense of belonging and shared ownership, encouraging resident engagement and collaboration.

Besonda's Bold Step:

We're not just replicating the existing model; we're innovating. Our approach eliminates the need for free land, unlocking more widespread development potential across BC.

How You Can Help:

Join us in democratizing housing! Your contribution, no matter the size, fuels our progress:

  • Donate: Your financial support directly impacts project development and resident support services.
  • Spread the word: Share our story with friends, family, and networks.
