Budzey Building

Streetohome is working with families to break the cycle of homelessness in this building dedicated to the needs of women and children. In partnership with RainCity Housing, the Province of BC and the City of Vancouver, Streetohome committed $20 million to develop eight city sites, including this 147 unit project, with 41 suites set aside for women with children, and 105 for single women.

RainCity Housing offers a variety of programs to build community and partnerships for tenants such as childcare and support services, medical and mental health services; peer-based programs; community kitchen and family nights; and a Parent Resource Centre.

Streetohome's contribution to the Budzey Building was made possible by Silver Wheaton, Face The World, and Canuck for Kids Fund
