for Women of Options Campaign for Affordable Housing
For 50 years, Options has worked as a registered charity to provide essential social services in Surrey, Delta, White Rock/South Surrey, and Langley. To mark it's 50th year of service, Options has united 50 influential South Fraser women to help raise 1.5 million dollars in support of a new affordable housing build at 81st Avenue and King George Boulevard in Surrey, BC. Located south of the Fraser River, Options, partnered with their sister society, Habitat Housing Society, jumped at the opportunity to give back to the community they have proudly served for the past five decades.
Westland Insurance, which has become the largest independent, Canadian-owned brokerage in the country during its 40 years of existence, has enthusiastically endorsed the Women of Options campaign by gifting $25,000 towards the affordable housing project.
"When people have the secure foundation of a safe and affordable home, often other things will also fall into place. Seeing someone move from danger to safety, it is indescribable. It is life altering. And we all do better when our neighbours are doing better." said Christine Mohr, CEO, Options Community Services and Habitat Housing Society. "We really want to thank Westland Insurance for their generosity and support in helping us make a difference in this community."
