Streetohome is partnering with Atira Women’s Resource Society to create an intergenerational community of women and children, where moms, grandmas, aunties, sisters, and cousins can raise their children together in their preferred neighbourhood of Strathcona.

The building project involves the construction of 21 micro suites (7 studios and 14 two-bedroom units) that will become home for 21 women and at least 14 children who have been marginalized by violence, abuse, homelessness, exploitation and isolation.

This intentional community will embrace the African proverb – ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ leading to better outcomes for both parents and children involved with the Ministry of Children & Family Development and/or Vancouver Aboriginal Child & Family Services Society.
