More homeless off street

Heath House opened this week just as the Inn From the Cold shelter was closing, which is good and bad news when it comes to Kelowna’s fight against homelessness.

“It was precision timing that we opened and they closed,” Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna executive director Shelagh Turner said during Heath House’s official opening on Thursday.

Heath House, a supportive housing facility that consists of 40 units for both singles and couples, is the third BC Housing building that CMHA Kelowna is operating in the city. It is located on Harvey Avenue and was formerly the Good Night Inn.

Each unit has its own bathroom, bed and mini-kitchen with apartment-sized refrigerator and freezer. All residents will have access to common amenity areas, including a laundry room, communal kitchen and a lounge area.
