If the model worked, we would see many examples of supportive housing units flourishing with both tenants and communities benefiting. Instead we see tenants suffering, communities in crisis and BC Housing's lack of response.
This is a perfect example, along with other locations in BC, how communities want to be supportive but are left holding the burden of care. It’s not fair to the supportive housing workers, the residents, and the community when models like this are considered a success by BC Housing. This is ultimately why CS is not the right location for an adult only housing first harm reduction facility. We're curious to know how BC Housing measures success for these projects - if it’s people being housed there is a major flaw as it doesn’t factor in so many other important variables that need to be considered (as we are seeing throughout BC).
