“We are passionate about this. Affordable housing offers the most positive impact on our seniors’ quality of life and eases the burden placed on families who are supporting senior family members.”
Funding for the Tea was provided by corporate donor AXA-XL and Butterfield and Vallis provided the food. Raffle prizes were donated by Miles Market, The Marketplace and BHT staff Ms Knight and Ms Smith. Music and sound system was provided by volunteer Mr Donavon Furbert of MVM with AXA-XL employees Ms Moira Lindo and Ms Lucy Monkman rolling up their sleeves and helping serve throughout the Tea.
The board consists of a Chairman, Deputy Chairman and seven other Trustees who manage the Trust’s five senior residential properties, offering 181 units and housing 196 seniors.
The Trust does not rely on any direct funding from Government but appreciates and welcomes their support for seniors in need with rent subsidies offered the Department of Financial Aid. Over the years the BHT has sought to be self-funding and meet its expenses through rents and where possible, through donations. Through collaboration, along with the support of the private and corporate community, BHT will continue to be a leading resource in affordable, independent living for seniors.
