Modular, wheelchair accessible, clinical supports
Chartrand Place is a temporary modular housing building, offering mental health support 24-hours a day, seven days a week, with home support workers available weekdays. The building is named after Michel Chartrand, an early resident of the Portland Hotel, who inspired many with his hope and resilience.
Residents can access a meal program and a variety of peer employment opportunities. There’s also a community garden on site with an apiary maintained by our community partner, Hives for Humanity.
The building was made possible by the BC government’s provision of $66 million towards the development of 600 new units of temporary modular housing in Vancouver in September 2017. The funding addressed the immediate needs of homeless residents while permanent housing was being created.
