How To Help

Help Us Build for Your Future

Right now, more than 780 seniors are waiting for an affordable place to call home, and more names are added to our waiting list every day. The affordable housing crisis has left seniors burdened with financial worries at a time when they should be enjoying their retirement years. For many, these are not the happy golden years everyone dreams about.



The only solution is to build more affordable senior’s housing, however, construction doesn’t happen overnight, often taking  years and several million dollars. A donation to the Building for Life fund can help end the wait for those who need housing now as well as ensure we’ll be there when you need us.

Our Successes

In 2015, GEF Seniors Housing opened Ottewell Terrace. The building was supported in part by the Building for Life Fund. More than 50 seniors call Ottewell Terrace their home. Help us repeat Ottewell Terrace’s success and ensure more seniors in need can have a friendly, affordable, and secure place to call home.
