Thirty self-contained suites of supportive housing at 3030 Gordon Avenue provide longer term accommodation (typically up to 2 years) for previously homeless persons preparing for independent living. Supports are provided as necessary. To apply for a transitional housing suite, please contact BC Housing’s Orange Hall Office at 604-648-4270 or email BC Housing.
The Hope for Freedom Society operates a program of outreach to persons homeless or at risk of homelessness in the Tri-Cities under contract to BC Housing. Two outreach workers seek out homeless persons where they live, establishing contact, developing rapport and connecting them with available resources and services when they are ready.
