Thanks to Modular Storage for their donation!

Thank you to Modular Storage for their donation of much needed shelf cart storage units which will be used to transport laundry to and from the emergency shelters and our stabilization shelter to the laundry. The modules are able to lock, have internal shelving and are on wheels. Even though they are heavy duty, they are also really easy to move around. We put all our equipment through their paces so we are so happy to have some really tough storage!

They also provided some tote storage bins for our winter clothing we collected all year to distribute when the weather turns cold. This will help to keep everything organized and clean as we begin our renovations. tote-closed_yellow-lid

Move In Day

Chris Powell sorting out move in informationFrank moving into the new buildingPeople moving in to The Lighthouse

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.
