Prince Rupert is an incredibly close community. When residents took actions into their own hands and pitched tents outside of city hall last winter, we knew we had to work together to find a long-term solution for vulnerable people. The Park Avenue homes will provide a place for people to not only stay warm, but also receive health and wellness services, and opportunities for employment training. I’m incredibly thankful for the North Coast Transition Society and the CIty of Prince Rupert’s role in making these homes a reality in Prince Rupert.
In the meantime, the Emergency Weather Shelter at 328 3rd Ave W will remain open until the supportive housing is completed.
