Youth at risk have special needs and require special supports to help them thrive. In partnership with the Vancouver Native Housing Society, Broadway Youth Resource Centre, the Province of BC and the City of Vancouver, Streetohome committed $20 million to develop eight city sites, including this 99 unit project. Thirty of the units are dedicated to youth aged 16 to 24.
The building is also the new home of the Broadway Youth Resource Centre. Tenants access community-based mental and physical health care; addictions services; household management and meal preparation; money management and community living skills.
Streetohome’s contribution to this project is made possible in part because of the generosity of Coast Capital Savings ($375,000) and Face of Today Foundation ($15,000). Read more about Coast Capital Savings’ gift.
The building opened June 2016.

Every year, Coast Capital Savings invests 7% of its pre-tax profits towards local community causes. Since 2000, that’s more than $65 million.
