Firehall #5 project groundbreaking
On November 28, 2016, partners and guests attended a groundbreaking ceremony for Firehall #5 and YWCA Pacific Spirit Terrace, which will provide 31 units of affordable family housing for single moms.
Streetohome’s contribution would not be possible without the support of lead donors include R. Howard Webster Foundation, The 625 Powell Street Foundation, and MariaMarina Foundation.
