Baptist Housing's History of Serving Seniors in British Columbia | Baptist Housing

Our Story

Baptist Housing has a rich history of serving seniors in British Columbia.

Our first senior living community was built in the Killarney area of Vancouver in 1964, when people from the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches saw a growing need to provide affordable housing for seniors and families. Federal and provincial funding opportunities allowed them to embark on the journey of founding a non-profit organization to compassionately meet these needs. In 1964, we had 64 room and board units and 102 apartments serving 172 Residents with 8 Team Members.

We have 17 senior living communities throughout British Columbia. With hundreds of suites ranging over three levels of care, we serve over 2100 Residents with 1200 Team Members.

We are affiliated with the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches Pacific, yet our communities welcome people of all faith traditions. We believe our Christian heritage and faith helps us compassionately meet the needs of those living in our communities. Our Chaplains are an integral part of community life and are available to address the spiritual needs of our Residents and their family members.
