VERNON. B.C. – A new supportive housing unity with 52 supportive homes has opened for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Vernon, British Columbia.
“This building will not only change the lives of its residents, but it will have a positive impact on the community as well,” said Harwinder Sandhu, MLA for Vernon-Monashee, in a press release.
The building was the product of a partnership between the Province, Turning Points Collaborative Society and the City of Vernon.
“Located at 2600-35th St., The Crossings @ 35th has 41 self-contained units, three one-bedroom suites for couples, and four accessible and four adaptable units. The building includes a commercial kitchen and dining room, as well as laundry and storage space. Landscaped outdoor areas will provide definition between private and public areas surrounding the building for the privacy and safety of the residents,” reads the release.
BC Housing provided $14.6 million for the project and will provide $1.2 million in annual operating funding.
