New View Society owns one apartment building (with 20 one bedroom suites), and four shared accommodation houses in Port Coquitlam. Tenants of the houses have a private bedroom each and as a group share the kitchen, living room, and bathrooms with the other occupants of the house.

Built in 2011, the top level of the New View Society is dedicated to residential housing- called Iris House. This is a Young Adult Housing Program for adults aged 19-35 with a primary mental health diagnosis who have experienced challenges in maintaining housing. The program offers an opportunity for young adults to live independently in affordable housing, with daily support and guidance and an environment that focuses on rehabilitation and recovery. It is expected that individuals work towards moving to more, independent living arrangements.
