We were really happy to attend the grand opening of YSB’s Youth Housing Hub, and glad to have been part of this incredible project. It was a great, heartwarming event full of speeches, cheers, and doughnuts. After the great speeches from YSB, the YSB Foundation, and the City of Ottawa, a tenant days away from moving in to the building shared his story, inspiring us all with his resilience and strength.
I have been working on this project with Anna since I joined Cahdco in June of last year. It has been a privilege to watch this project go from idea to reality, and we all appreciate the great effort that has been put in to creating this supportive housing development where youth can take charge of their lives.
We were able to tour the facility and got to see the completed youth services hub and residential units. Students from the Joan of Arc Academy had put together welcome/care packages, which included various essentials as well as handmade cutting boards and washcloths, to welcome tenants into their new homes.
