No operator for the property has been selected yet. The supportive housing services to be provided will include supports such as meals, connection to health services, income assistance and other client focused services.

  • My son lives in a room at 956 Main Street. He is on a disability pension and is concerned what will happen to his situation in this building. He likes living where he is and is concerned about the future

    BC Housing has been working closely with the building’s owner and has purchased 956 Main Street with the intention of creating safe, warm homes for people who are or are at risk of homelessness. We want you to know that your son will not be forced to move. He can stay in his home under the same conditions as his current agreement.
