West Side Baptist Church will provide food, clothing to new tenants.
West Side Baptist Church, a south Vancouver church, is reaching out to the non-profit housing manager of a soon-to-be-opened 78-unit modular housing complex in Marpole for homeless people and wants to donate food and supplies to tenants once they move in next month.
Last September, Premier John Horgan announced Vancouver would get $66 million to build 600 modular housing units for homeless people. The city’s last homeless count showed there were 2,138 people without a home.
