The Rosewood Project

The City of Surrey, BC Housing and Provincial Rental Housing Corporation partnered with FRAFCA and E Fry to develop one of Surrey’s newest supportive housing projects, Rosewood. 

The Rosewood is located on the shared unceded traditional territory of the Kwantlen, Katzie and Semiahmoo First Nations at 9683 137 Street, Surrey, BC, opened its doors in 2022, offering 57 permanent long-term homes tailored for women, their children, and youth. These suites cater specifically to women with a mix of low income and market rental units, including 15 units designated for Indigenous women managed by the Fraser Region Aboriginal Friendship Centre Association, with the remaining units operated by our partner, E Fry.

In addition to permanent housing, The Rosewood provides year-round access to temporary accommodation, featuring a 20-bed emergency shelter for single women and another 20-bed emergency shelter for women and their children. The main floor of The Rosewood serves as the heart of our community care programs, offering residents and vulnerable women in the community access to medical and dental care, doula services, childcare, a community kitchen, a drop-in center with showers, laundry and meal programs, computers, and telephones, as well as a range of counseling, parenting, and children’s programs. At The Rosewood, elders, peers, volunteers, professional staff, and residents collaborate to build a community for the most vulnerable, isolated, and poverty-stricken women and their children in Surrey. Indigenous cultural practices and ceremonial opportunities are incorporated into the shared community spaces, allowing all residents of the housing and shelter facilities to participate.

Rosewood includes various amenities and services, such as:

  • Supports on-site to ensure people can achieve and maintain housing stability.
  • Shared amenity space
  • Staff on-site 24/7
  • Daily meals
  • Life-skills training
