My Place - Supportive Housing in Vernon

March 13, 2021

My Place, a 56-unit supportive housing building in Vernon, opened in July 2019. Run by Turning Points Collaborative Society (TPCS), the new homes offer safe, secure housing for those experiencing homelessness.

Right away, formerly homeless community members settled in.

The secret of My Place’s success began in 2018. The staff started interviewing people living in the TPCS-operated bridge housing on 33rd Street. Working with future My Place residents helped the team learn about resident needs for their future homes.
