Three projects in Ottawa receive funding to build supportive housing

Three projects in Ottawa receive funding to build supportive housing

OTTAWA — The Ontario government is providing over $9.5 million to help create more than 100 supportive housing units in Ottawa with three projects for individuals who are experiencing or are at-risk of homelessness.

Shepherds of Good Hope, located at 216 Murray St., will receive nearly $4.7 million to help create 48 studio apartments, including at least 24 rooms prioritized for Indigenous people and four rooms for women.

The eight-storey building is in Ottawa’s Lowertown neighbourhood. The first floor of the building will feature a new community meal centre and indoor/outdoor drop-in space that will be open to the community.

Located at 44 Eccles St., Cornerstone Housing for Women, will be getting almost $4.2 million to help create 46 studio apartments. The four-storey building offers each resident their own washroom, kitchenette as well as a laundry room on each floor. Twelve units are fully accessible, barrier-free with wheel-in showers and lowered countertops.

Ottawa Mission, Florence Street Rooming House will get $700,000 in funding to help create eight units. The three-and-a-half-storey building has been fully renovated inside and the exterior of the building was updated, including brand new windows. All units include private or semi-private washrooms, access to a communal kitchen, shared laundry and a backyard.

The announcement is part of the province’s Social Services Relief Fund, which has provided over $1.2 billion of support to help municipal service managers and Indigenous program administrators create longer-term housing solutions and help vulnerable people in Ontario, including those who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.
