Brightside fosters a community environment where everyone feels safe, secure and has a sense of belonging. Our residents are seniors, families and people with disabilities who are able to live independently.

Coming from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, our tenants have one thing in common — desire for housing security. Besides providing homes, Brightside nurtures and listens to its community, which has resulted in creating community gardens, amenity rooms, regular gatherings and assistance programs.

“Thank you for taking great care of our building and for all the work you do! I appreciate coming home daily.”
