AHA MEDIA sees new sign at 58 West Hastings in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) – 100 percent social housing!

From http://www.100percentsocialhousing.com/

We’ve been struggling to secure land in the DTES for low-income housing. To keep a fair balance, we need more development of 100% Social Housing.

Years ago we persuaded a private developer to secure some land that could eventually be used for housing. The city will end up with possession of the land, but we fear city staff may encourage this to be a “mixed” development (condos). We’re trying to work to make sure this site remains 100% Social Housing.

This site would include 166 units of Low-Income Housing, 30 Low-Income Single Family units and 40 Rent-To-Own units, as well as an expanded Potluck Cafe, a medical and dental clinic to serve the community, and community group offices. The Rent-To-Own units would cost $375-$475 per month, and would provide a percentage ownership of their unit.

Please join the thousands who have already shown their support for this project. This is one piece of the puzzle to ending homelessness and improving conditions in the low-income community of the DTES. Thank you!
