About the Project
The Province, through BC Housing and Fraser Health, in partnership with the City of Surrey, is committed to offering everyone a home. To address the current situation, the City of Surrey and BC Housing have partnered to identify three sites in the City Centre area for the placement of short-term temporary accommodation units, to be operated with 24/7 on-site management by Lookout Housing & Health Society.
This is the part of the interim solution to meet the urgent need of people experiencing homelessness. This housing (Phase I) will be replaced by 250 units of permanent affordable housing (Phase II) once additional sites have been identified and the additional modular homes with support services have been built.
Phase I: New Temporary Accommodation Units
- Site 1: 10662 King George Blvd
- Site 2: 13550 105 Ave
- Site 3: 13425 107A Ave
To assist people with substance disorders who are homeless in the community, Fraser Health, in partnership with Lookout Housing and Health Society and BC Housing, will operate an Intensive Case Management (ICM) team out of one of the temporary accommodation sites.
Following a ‘Housing First’ philosophy that supports people who are homeless to obtain and maintain housing, the ICM team will assist people who may be facing significant challenges with health, substance use, mental health, poverty, education, and housing by connecting them to support services and treatment.
Phase II: New Permanent Units
- 250 new permanent supportive housing units to replace temporary units at sites to identified.
