Origin

(July 30, 2014) Report from the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration

Summary

Cornerstone Place is a 50-bed men's purchase of service shelter that has been located at 833 St. Clair Avenue West in Ward 21 since 2001. It has had to suspend its operations by July 31, 2014 as the organization's lease was up.  The property was sold to a developer in July 2012 who is now commencing work on the site. A proposed new location has been identified at 616 Vaughan Road in Ward 15, which requires Council approval in order to proceed.

 

Shelter, Support and Housing Administration (SSHA) is working in cooperation with the local ward councillor to conduct community outreach and consultation with area residents.  An open community meeting was held on July 28, 2014 to discuss the planned shelter location, answer residents' questions, and listen to their concerns.

 

In order to ensure service continuity for Cornerstone's residents, SSHA and Cornerstone developed in partnership a transition plan for them. The residents have been provided with housing supports or have been placed in available beds within the rest of the men's shelter system.  SSHA has also been developing a plan in partnership with the agency to support Cornerstone Place Shelter staff until the shelter is able to re-open at the proposed new location.
