Creating healthy, safe, stable homes for people in Vernon

Located at 2600 35 Street, this new building would add 52 permanent, purpose-built studio apartments to the existing My Place site. Turning Points Collaborative Society has been successfully operating My Place for the past year and the new units at My Place 2 would expand on their success. The property has ample space for the new units, is owned by BC Housing and is ready for the development of My Place 2.

Turning Points Collaborative Society (TPCS) is an experienced local 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.

Virtual Neighbourhood Dialogue Session


In order to support the successful integration of the building and tenants into the surrounding community, BC Housing and TPCS invite the community to explore ways to build an inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity for safe and healthy places to live and work.
BC Housing, TPCS and other partners engaged neighbours and the community in small group discussions to explore ideas for how the community can support the success of this new housing. The discussion for My Place 2 (2600 35 Street) was held on Wednesday, August 26.

  • Has consideration been given to housing density in the 35th street expansion project. Are there other city owned vacant lots that are being considered.

    RobotHouse asked 3 months ago

    Supportive housing sites are considered and selected with respect to proximity to community services, accessibility to transit, adequate lot size, connections to utilities, and compatible land-use policies. The new supportive housing property located at 2600 35th Street is owned by BC Housing and is zoned for this use. Turning Points has been successfully operating My Place on the property for the past year, providing a new beginning for individuals previously experiencing homelessness in Vernon. The new homes created on the site will be an extension of that success.
