65 East Hastings Street, Vancouver

The project features 92 units of housing and support services for multi-marginalized people currently living in the Downtown Eastside community, including people living on the street, repeat shelter users, women & youth.  It was occupied in March 2009.  The transitional housing units are for people with unresolved health needs and complex housing behaviours who receive 24/7 support services, while the apartment units are for people who are ready to live independently.  The project houses Vancouver’s first “bedbug sauna”, a decontamination room where infested furniture receives a dry high heat treatment.
