Community housing development celebrates 20 years of serving Hamilton

When Keith Trotman first arrived in Hamilton 42 years ago, he had trouble finding a place to live.

He wished there were more affordable housing options in the city.

In a way, Trotman got his wish. In 1992, a handful of members of the black community in Hamilton started a housing project to offer affordable places for low-income people.

They built Ebony Group Community Homes on Upper Ottawa Street near Stonechurch Family Health Centre.

Ebony’s 55 units are for lower income-families, victims of violence and the physically disabled. On Thursday, Ebony celebrates its 20th anniversary.
