About the Project
The City of Richmond, BC Housing, and RainCity Housing are working together to address the city’s urgent need for supportive housing and support services for individuals who are experiencing, or most at risk of experiencing, homelessness.
The proposed 40-unit modular housing project is part of the Rapid Response to Homelessness Program. The three-storey building is proposed to be located on land owned by the City of Richmond at 7300 Elmbridge Way for up to five years.
The housing will be managed by RainCity Housing, an experienced and professional supportive housing operator. Support services would include breakfast and a hot meal each day, life-skills training, and access to primary health and mental health services.
This type of housing fills a housing gap in Richmond for individuals seeking to leave the shelter system or streets, and aims to move people towards housing independence and an improved quality of life.
