Our Island Home Building Committee

Our Island Home – Feasibility Study

OIH is conducting a new architectural/engineering feasibility study to explore what steps would be required to make an informed decision on how to best proceed if OIH were to replace the current facility on its existing site and remain at 9 East Creek Road. As such, the study does not represent a commitment to fund, design and build a new facility; rather, it will explore the issues involved in undertaking such a challenge.
