The Lighthouse Supported Living Annual General Meeting is tomorrow, March 29th at 7:00pm in the Lighthouse dining room. 304 2nd Ave S, entrance is on 20th St. We will share about the work done by the Lighthouse including expansion of services and uplifting stories of lives changed in 2015. All are welcome to attend.
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.
The Lighthouse is going no-smoking on September 1st, 2012 out of respect for the non-smoking residents, guests, staff and professionals that are in and out of our building daily. For residents that do smoke, there is a bench out front and a gorgeous deck that links the two buildings. In the winter we will be providing a place for smokers to stay out of the wind and cold. We know it’s a big shift but we are looking forward to working together to make The Lighthouse a safe and pleasant place for all of our residents.
