Victoria apartment building donated to house homeless youth


Threshold Housing Society has received a huge donation – a four unit apartment building. With a little help from their friends at HeroWork eight homeless youth will soon be calling it home.

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.
