Olympic Housing Gets New Life

Through the combination of government funding, and community donations and support, the modular homes that housed Olympic athletes during last year’s winter games will now be home to people with mental health problems who otherwise might be at risk for homelessness. According to British Columbia’s Coast Reporter, the $3.7 million development reconfigured the Sechelt building into eight apartment homes. An adjacent former Royal Canadian Mounted Police post will be the site of support services and community programs for the residents. The development is dubbed the Arrowhead Centre. RichColeman, Minister of Public Safety, and Solicitor General and Minister responsible for Housing, tells the paper, “The legacy of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games continues to deliver benefits to British Columbians.” The Sunshine Coast Community Services Society (SCCSS) will receive annual funding from the provincial government for operation and support services, and will also manage the apartments. Gloria Lifton, board president of SCCSS, says, “Thanks to this partnership, people with mental health issues in the Sunshine Coast community will be able to live in affordable, supportive housing near their family and friends.”
