Toronto city council approved funding for 87 affordable housing units for people that are currently homeless or living in substandard housing. The housing will be developed by the Toronto Christian Resource Centre as the foundation of a mixed-use building which will include community programs and services and an interfaith worship space in the emerging Regent Park community.
“The new housing will provide stable housing for many of the people that we see in our drop-in. Once they have that stability we will work with them to rebuild their lives and to explore a brighter future. I want to thank our local Councillor Pam McConnell and affordable housing committee chair, Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti, for shepherding this project through council,” Dineen said.
