Opened in 2002, the Smith Yuen Apartments were built, are owned and are property managed by SHS.

The Smith-Yuen Apartments are purpose-built social housing for senior citizens living with mental health issues. The project consists of 52 self-contained suites for traditionally hard-to-house low income seniors who, like many older folks in the Downtown Eastside, had previously lacked stable supported housing. Residents at the Smith-Yuen fall across a broad spectrum of independence and the various available programs strive to accommodate the full range of capabilities present in this thriving seniors’ community.
