We need more social supports in north Durham.

Durham Region's new Supportive Housing Project, to be located at 133 Main Street in Beaverton, will consist of a 50-unit apartment building, as well as a separate building, offering support services to residents who live on-site, as well as the greater north Durham community.

Durham Region is asking for feedback from the Brock Township community as it plans to bring additional support services to north Durham. The services will be connected to the new housing project planned in Beaverton. They will serve both the broader community and residents of the development. The services will range from medical care, mental health counselling, financial assistance, rental support, seniors support and more.

This project provides the opportunity to create efficiencies in the provision of support services in the north that will benefit all residents.

Public information session

The Region will also be hosting a virtual public information session on Thursday, October 29, at 6:30 p.m. to gather more input.

For the virtual session, Regional staff will provide an overview of the Beaverton Housing project, and residents of north Durham can register for a time to speak to a panel of Regional staff that includes:

  • Elaine Baxter-Trahair, Chief Administrative Officer
  • Stella Danos-Papaconstantinou, Commissioner of Social Services
  • Alan Robins, Director of Housing
  • Jenni Demanuele, Director of Business Services

The session will be live streamed and each person will be given three minutes to address the panel. Representatives of groups will be allotted five minutes to speak.

To register to address the panel, please email SocialServices@durham.ca or call 905-668-7711 ext. 2473 by October 27 at noon.
