Burnham Place, a tribute to our CEO

In celebration of Darrell Burnham’s 35 years of service in community-based mental health services, we formally open Burnham Place.

Burnham Place has significant meaning for many residents of the Mount Pleasant community and beyond, many of whom continue to benefit from Coast Mental Health’s (Coast) supports and programming.


Housing in Mount Pleasant neighbourhood

With the tenanting complete, this 68-unit supportive housing facility provides warm, safe homes to many people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness.

Tenants also have access to a meal program and laundry services at this facility.

Coast’s membership-run clubhouse is located across the street from this facility, and  offers tenants recreational activities, meals and education programming, as well as employment opportunities through two social enterprises: The Street Clean Team and Landscaping With Heart.
