The Jean and Howard Caine Apartment Building was developed by March of Dimes Canada Non-Profit Housing Corporation to provide accessible, affordable, supportive housing for people with physical disabilities.
The 59-unit building has 24 specially designed support care units and is home to people with physical needs who live safely and independently in their own homes.
It was with the generous support of the Government of Ontario, that this apartment building was constructed. Operating funds are annually provided by the Regional Municipality of Halton, enabling tenants in need to have reduced rents and for the Corporation to provide an excellent state of repair in the building.
This building was named to honour Jean and Howard Caine, who along with their daughter Pamela, a polio survivor, were devoted disability advocates who dedicated their lives to promoting equality and opportunity for all people with disabilities.
The 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Jean & Howard Caine Apartments will take place on Tuesday July 28, 2015 between 12:00 P.M. – 2:00 P.M., at 259 Robinson Street in Oakville, Ontario.
