BRACEBRIDGE, ONT. — In order to provide people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness the housing and support services they need, the Ontario government is investing $1.5 million in Muskoka, Ont.
The investment will go towards a supportive housing project planned by the District Municipality of Muskoka. The new units will be located in the Town of Bracebridge and will feature space for support service agencies that offer programs for homeless, disadvantaged youth and youth at risk of homelessness, indicates a release issued May 8.
“This project will help give those at the greatest risk, including youth, a place to call home with the supports they need,” said Norm Miller, MPP for Parry Sound – Muskoka, in a statement. “I’d like to thank the District and everyone who is working hard to make this community stronger for the incredible and difficult work you do in the community.”
The funding is provided through Ontario’s Home for Good program.
