In the mid 1960s, Canon Allan Greene of the Coast Columbia Mission realized there was a need for low-cost housing for seniors on the Sunshine Coast. He formed a Society, and they purchased land at Ocean and Medusa street in Sechelt and built 10 units. Over the next 10 years, they built a further 29 units.

In the late 1970s the original members of the Society realized they were growing older, and that there was no one to replace them. They asked the Sunshine Coast Lions Club to take over ownership and operation of the Society and Greenecourt.

In the early 1980s the Sunshine Coast Lions Housing Society built an additional 24 units and in 2002 the Society built a further 22 units. In 2012, the Society added another 65 units with the Jack Nelson building where the first 10 units were located. The Society is in the process of building a fourth building on site.
