We recently discovered The Friendly Landlord Network through Aunt Leah’s Place programs at the #housingcentral conference. If you have secure self contained accommodation available to rent - you could be part of a stable future for a youth aged out of foster care. Such a powerful way to affect change. Think about it…
This week’s gem from the #housingcentral conference is the Skwachays Lodge and Residence in downtown Vancouver.
“Owned and operated by Vancouver Native Housing Society (VNHS), the facility provides 24 shelter rate apartments for Indigenous people at risk of homelessness, and two social enterprises. The top three floors contain 18 boutique hotel units. At street level, the Urban Aboriginal Fair Trade Gallery showcases Indigenous artistic and cultural work.”
Look for the distinctive rooftop sweat lodge and stop in to check out and support their gallery sometime soon!
We are keen to share some of the projects from the #housingcentral conference this week. Street Symphony is one of those. Listen to their story and be inspired. @VijayGupta
