Seasons House Upgrade Coming Soon
Quesnel, B.C. -Construction is expected to start this fall on new affordable rental housing in Quesnel.
The Seasons House shelter will be moved and repurposed into a three-storey, 30-unit affordable rental housing project for those at risk of homelessness, including two units on the ground floor to be used as shelter beds.
The Province has committed $6 million in capital funding for the project, which will be operated by the Quesnel Shelter and Support Society.
Sandy Brunton, board director, Quesnel Shelter and Support Society says she is looking forward to the new project “The new building will provide much-needed supports for the most vulnerable people in our city.”
BC Housing is working with the City of Quesnel on the rezoning and community consultation process.
There will also be some upgrades to the Amata Transition House in Quesnel, which provides shelter to women and children who have experienced violence or are at risk of experiencing violence. A kitchen renovation, bathroom updates and repairs, as well as window replacements and security upgrades will soon be completed.
