The province of British Columbia has taken a positive step to help its community especially during a time like this where the world is living in uncertainty. 
 
The Government of B.C., the City of Prince Rupert and North Coast Transition Society (NCTS) have partnered together to purchase a building to provide homes for people are, or at risk of homelessness. 
 
MLA Jennifer Rice says "Homelessness affects not only those experiencing it, but also the community as a whole," 
 
The Province purchased the former Raffles Inn motel and will convert it into a permanent supportive housing building with up to 48 units- each with private washrooms, showers and mini kitchens. The building will include a commercial kitchen, dining and lounge areas, storage and amenity space, laundry and a medical examination room.
 
North Coast Transition Society will operate the supportive housing building and will provide residents with 24/7 on-site staff and support services, including meal programs, life and employment skills training, health and wellness support services and opportunities for volunteer work.
