On September 1st, 30 suites were available at The Lighthouse’s affordable housing apartments were available for occupancy and people moved in. While the entire building won’t be finished until October 1st, it was a big day in both the east and the Empire Hotel Tower. We had 8 people move from our supported living suites which meant that 8 people from the shelter were able to move to their own homes that day as well. In all, the project will enable over 30 people who were homeless, living in shelters or on the streets to have a place to call home.
Thank you to our partners in this project, the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation, Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation, the Homelessness Partnering Strategy, and the City of Saskatoon for making this day happen.
