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.
