Kelowna - 3235 Cougar Road

Illustrative rendering, birds-eye view of Cougar Road building site.

Overview

BC Housing is working with Turning Points Collaborative Society (TPCS) on a proposal to bring new homes with supports for people experiencing homelessness on the west side of Okanagan Lake. .

Community Engagement

We will be hosting a virtual Neighbourhood Information Session on Thursday, October 1, 2020 at 6:00pm and invite the community to learn more, ask questions, and provide feedback to the project team. You can register for the session in the Key Dates section.

Project Details

The proposal is to build approximately 52 new permanent purpose-built homes with supports at 3235 Cougar Road to meet critical community housing needs.

The 2018 Westside Point-In-Time found 72 people experiencing homelessness. COVID-19 highlighted the critical need to bring people inside. These new homes would help provide a safe place for people who don’t have a home.

TPCS is an experienced non-profit society providing housing and support services to people experiencing homelessness in the region. They would operate the building and provide residents with supports such as meal programs, life and employment skills training, and health and wellness support services. Staff would be onsite 24/7, working with each resident to understand their needs and goals and providing the support they need to have housing stability.

BC Housing and TPCS would select residents in collaboration with local service providers. All new residents would pay rent and sign a program agreement and good neighbour agreement.
