a modern day barn raising...a look inside the renovated youth housing

Last weekend, organizers, volunteers, contractors, neighbours, Threshold Housing staff attended the big reveal of the new housing 4-plex for youth in Victoria, BC.  The project started over 4 months ago when Herowork was approached to help initiate a renovation of the apartment building donated to the Threshold Housing Society.  Over a period of about 3 weeks, numerous volunteer hours, and financial and material donations a complete retrofit was completed.  The unit will be able to house 6 youth and an office/training space for the Threshold Society.  In the future, it is hoped to house 8 youth when new office space becomes available.  Each of the four units was prepared by 4 different designers using all donated furnishings and materials, creating beautiful, safe and functional living spaces for youth in need of housing.
