The QLC Story
The Quinte Living Centre provides a place for senior citizens who are unable to remain in their homes and allows them to remain independent with a few support services and dining facilities. We are a non-denominational outreach project of Bridge Street United Church, a vision of the late John W. Deacon in 1973 and was incorporated as a registered charitable non-profit corporation in 1979.
The Quinte Living Centre is a member of and works with the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association (ONPHA) to build a strong social housing sector and influence government housing policies.
Our mission is to provide a happy, healthy and stimulating environment for seniors who are unable to remain in their homes, but would like to remain independent with a few support services. The Quinte Living Centre consists of 9 floors with a total of 112 units. We have two sources of income to pay for our operating expenses, rents and a subsidy established by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and administered through Hastings County Social Housing Branch.
WE ARE A NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION
The Quinte Living Centre runs its operations on a non-profit basis. This means that rental income, plus the government subsidy is designed to cover just the cost of our normal operating costs, such as maintenance, administration, insurance, municipal taxes, utilities and mortgage. We also set aside a reserve each year to cover the cost of future major replacements, such as the roof, windows, and appliances.
