Pacifica Housing is very pleased to share that we will be the operators of the new Supportive Housing site under construction at 1909 Prosser Road in Central Saanich.
BC Housing is purchasing a building with 39 new permanent homes that will be used for supportive housing for people who are marginalized and experiencing homelessness in Central Saanich.
With this design, priority will be given to people at risk of homelessness in the Central Saanich region who need minimal supports and are ready to move toward living more independently; many of these people have been living successfully in temporary shelters.
This development is part of the Province's ongoing commitment to build housing solutions for those in need and is one of six new projects that will deliver more than 280 permanent supportive homes for people experiencing homelessness across the Capital region.
The Prosser Road Supportive housing site will include self-contained units with various support services provided on-site, to help people achieve and maintain housing stability. Supports will include:
Staff would be on-site 24/7 working with each resident to understand their needs and help them set and meet their personal goals.
Applicants will go through an assessment process to make sure there is a mix of residents with the right supports. All residents will have an individual support plan.
As BC Housing prepares to purchase and open 1909 Prosser Road, both BC Housing and Pacifica Housing will be engaging with neighbours over the coming months to discuss how the residents of these new homes will fit into the community. We will also be putting together a Community Advisory Committee and will share more information in early 2023 about the application process.
Stay tuned to learn more about the programming designed specifically for this site!
