TORONTO – Hollyburn Properties, in partnership with Covenant House Toronto and Covenant House Vancouver, has created an innovative model of providing supportive, transitional housing to homeless youth.
In this video produced by the Homeless Hub, a web-based research library and information centre, Hollyburn and Covenant House share their unique program in the hopes of encouraging other property management companies and developers to start something similar. This program has pioneered an approach of supporting those who need housing most by giving them just that – actual housing!
“The thing that I’m loving about the Hollyburn approach is that the building superintendent, and other employees of Hollyburn, have all bought in – significantly – and they treat and include our young people as real members of the community.”
- Bruce Rivers, Covenant House Toronto, Executive Director
