Grace Gardens Receives Federal Funding
Words cannot describe how it feels to officially announce the Federal Government’s support of $6.4 million towards the Grace Gardens Permanent Supportive Housing project.
Grace Gardens (formerly known as the Parkview Motel located at 721 Woolwich in Guelph) will provide 32 individuals who are currently experiencing homelessness in Guelph Wellington a safe and affordable place to call home with access to 24/7 supports. Stepping Stone is thrilled to have this project receive the funding it needs to really make it a beautiful and deeply affordable place to live for community members who have been homeless for years and struggling with mental health and addictions.
“Today is truly a day of celebration. It takes all levels of government and community to use both heart and influence to get us to this moment in time. This is our first step in many to meet our communities goal in ending homelessness.” – Gail Hoekstra, Executive Director
