History of Our Community

Durham Christian Homes was established and incorporated in 1983 as an interdenominational organization to provide housing for seniors in Durham Region. We received permission in 1986 from The Ontario Ministry of Housing to build and operate a Seniors Residence.

The planning and financial support for the establishment of Durham Christian Homes as a Christian retirement residence was initiated with tremendous input and financial support from members of the local Reformed Churches.

Today we are very grateful for their determination and vision as we operate two residential towers and a large community centre.

  • Providence Place, was completed in 1988
  • Tekoa Manor was completed in 2002.
  • The community center, Friendship Hall, built between the two towers, was completed in 2003.

Both facilities are intended for seniors who can live independently.


  • The Board of Directors of Durham Christian Homes Inc. is the governing body of our organization.
  • Board Members serve a three-year term and
  • Are elected by the membership of Durham Christian Homes Inc.
