South East Community Services Co-op
A renewed effort towards the establishment and construction of a community housing site that will allow residents to age in place within our region.
The South East Community Services Co-op (SECSC) board of directors, comprised of members of East Borderland Community Housing, Piney Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Rural Municipality of Piney, are in the process of formalizing and registering South East Manitoba Seniors Community Services Co-operative Inc. This officially kicks-off a renewed effort towards the establishment and construction of a community housing site that will allow residents to age in place within our region.
A great deal of work was accomplished to reach this point, with restored energy to achieve the collective goals of the SECSC board. The board has recently released an Expression of Interest (EOI) document to fulfil grant writing goals to bring the community housing initiative closer to reality by leveraging grants from all levels of government, non-government groups and corporations.
The Board has also begun work on its inaugural by-laws and, over the course of 2021, will hold their first annual general meeting. There are certainly many milestones yet to work towards. The SECSC and its partners are committed to fulfilling the Co-op’s goals of improving the lives of residents who live within the region. As we move forward, the board encourages residents to become involved, ask questions and envision how the future looks as our neighbors and friends age in place, within our community.
