ROOM TO LIVE
Affordable Living One Room At a Time. Ward Street Place is one of the only low-income housing blocks in Nelson and region. It is home to people living in poverty and those who have escaped homelessness.
The Room to Live campaign, launched in 2014, is renovating 45 units in the building. Each unit of the 105 year old building costs about $15,000 to renovate, and major upgrades have also been done to the electrical and fire safety systems and building structure.
With government and corporate donations providing $2.2 mil of the $2.9 mil funding amount needed, Nelson CARES Society set a goal to raise the remaining $690,000 through community fundraising. About $55,000 of that remains, just 7 per cent of the total project cost.
Your gift to Ward Street Place can make a lasting difference in someone’s life.
“At Nelson CARES Society we support the most vulnerable members of our community by creating and sustaining affordable housing.”
