About This Project

The complex provides 41 units of permanent, subsidized and staffed housing for individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the community. Offers furnished, self-contained bachelor suites, communal kitchen and meeting space. Nanaimo Affordable Housing (NAHS) owns and operates the complex with staffing contracted to two partner community agencies, Vancouver Island Mental Health Society (VIMHS) and Haven Society.

The VIMHS has been providing rehabilitation and housing support for individuals with a psychiatric disability for over 35 years and will be providing the 24 hour staff presence at the complex. One floor of the building is dedicated to housing single women who are fleeing violence and who have come through the many Haven Society programs offered in the community. Haven Society will also be providing more focused support for those women.
