AVENS Pavilion Project – COMING SOON 2024  

AVENS team is working hard to provide 102 safe and affordable housing units for seniors. It will include 92 (1 bedroom) and 10 (2 bedroom) units and introduce a new way of independent living for seniors that will allow them to age with dignity for longer in their homes.

At this time, construction is well underway, and our hope is to commence intakes in the Fall of 2024.
