QUESNEL SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
The 32 new supportive homes in the three-storey building at 355 Elliott Street will be self-contained, with each home being furnished and including a three-piece bathroom and kitchenette. There is also a secure storage area for bikes and personal possessions.
The housing contains a common dining area, commercial kitchen, amenity spaces and programming space for residents to enjoy. The Quesnel Shelter and Support Society will provide 24-hour service to help residents transition to independence and recovery through life and social skills training, as well as access to community services and support groups.
Four of the homes will be support recovery units, funded and managed by Northern Health. Support services will be provided to residents with addiction issues who have either completed a primary withdrawal management program, are waiting for treatment or are ready to integrate back to the community.
