Oct. 27th – Affordable Housing

As well as looking for a good facilitator for Nancy Wigen House, we are also talking to the SS Community Services Counselors who have groups of young people and seniors and people with mental illness who need affordable housing.

There is a pile of money on Salt Spring to make this happen and the VHES is working with the Salt Spring Agencies that are obtaining buildings for affordable housing projects. It will be interesting to see how these talks develop and whether perhaps Salt Spring can take over what VHES has been doing and carry it into the future–Either way, Nancy Wigen House has an important part to play in housing persons in need in future years.
