Mayor Gregor Robertson today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with S.U.C.C.E.S.S. establishing a long-term partnership to create affordable and supportive housing for seniors, families and youth in the City of Vancouver.
“The City of Vancouver and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. share a common goal to develop more affordable housing and support services,” said Mayor Robertson. “S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is a natural partner for the City because of their strong track record of delivering culturally-appropriate, community-based supportive housing.”
S.U.C.C.E.S.S. has been providing health-related housing and support services for seniors in Chinatown since 2001. And since 2008 it has been operating and managing social housing units in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Over the past 38 years, it has provided over 6 million client services to Metro Vancouver.
