Housing Societies in Creston

There are a number of housing societies in Creston that contribute to non-market housing.

Non-market housing means housing that is not bought or sold through the traditional housing market. It is often provided and managed by organizations such as housing cooperatives, community land trusts, and social housing providers. These organizations aim to address the housing affordability crisis by offering affordable, stable housing options to people who are struggling to find affordable homes in the market. This type of housing is often targeted towards low-income individuals, families, and communities, and plays an important role in promoting economic and social equality.

The Creston Valley Community Housing Society manages Legacy Place in Creston, BC. Legacy Place offers 2 and 3 bedrooms units for low income families with children. It is not pet friendly.
