Meet Carleton MacNeil, Riverside Estates’ new Community Navigator. Carleton’s job is to work with the residents of Riverside Estates to turn the housing units into homes, and together, create a community.
Antigonish Affordable Housing Society
The mission of the Antigonish Affordable Housing Society (AAHS) is to research and develop opportunities to create sufficient affordable housing and to provide social support for the residents of its developments. In September 2016, AAHS broke ground on the first phase of Riverside Estates. Now complete, the new four-unit complex started welcoming tenants in March 2017. AAHS plans to create an additional 10 units in Phase 2 once funding has been secured.
AAHS aims to break the cycle of poverty vulnerable people find themselves in, and to improve the quality of their lives by providing access to affordable and energy-efficient housing that is socially and financially sustainable, and supported by the community in which it is located.
