Victoria Apartment Building Donated to House Homeless Youth

Posted in News,South Island on 01 Aug 14

An anonymous donor has given a $725,000 Victoria apartment complex to the region’s homeless youth.

With four two-bedroom units, the apartment building on Davie Street in the South Jubilee neighbourhood will be the subject of a massive community makeover in September.

“The donor, who approached us, has worked with children and youth and understands how important stable housing is for them,” said Mark Muldoon, executive director of Threshold Housing Society.

The non-profit charity provides supportive and semi-independent housing for youth ages 16 to 21 at risk of homelessness, including those in government care. Many need a stable home to finish high school or enter the work force, he said, noting the youth do not have behavourial issues or a criminal history.
