Supportive housing project 90% funded, needs one more push

A new home for women and children fleeing violence is almost ready to start construction in Sechelt, they just need a little more money.

Catherine Leach from the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society asked council for help earlier this month, the new building is 90% funded but are hoping Sechelt can help them get over the top.

“Anybody in this community will be able to walk through those doors and access the support programs that they need, at the time that they need them,” she told council at its regular meeting last month. “Community members can walk through those doors and volunteer their time, sharing their knowledge and their expertise, and community members can come in and be employed by community services to have a career that is in service to the community.”

The six-storey building will provide 35 units as well as new space for the society’s programs.

Council is now considering the funding request.
