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 and Support Society, 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 and Support Society 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 this project was made possible in part because of the generosity of Silver Wheaton ($1.5 million), Canucks for Kids Fund, and Face the World Foundation ($500,000).
