Snug Cove House Society was formed in 1995 to provide the seniors of Bowen Island with supportive housing and complementary services. Snug House Society is a registered non-profit and charitable society governed by a committed volunteer Board of Directors representing a cross-section of perspectives and skills.

The plan for Snug Cove House is to offer senior citizens a home in which to age in place and to continue to enjoy their community by facilitating services.

Recognizing the need for safe and supportive housing options for seniors, the people of Bowen Island raised funds and purchased 1.2 acres next to Bowen’s only seniors’ housing cooperative, Bowen Court, on Miller Road. As of this summer, 2021, construction on that parcel of land is proceeding.

When asked why he cares about Snug Cove House, Graham replied, “We must end the annual disposal of our elders. We must end the individual tragedies and the routine unravelling of the whole cloth of our community. We can do it, and it’s the least we can do.”
