The 18-unit supportive housing complex will assist those experiencing chronic homelessness.
Thanks to a four-way partnership between The City of Barrie, County of Simcoe, Redwood Park Communities, and The David Busby Centre an old motel and adjacent house have been purchased, renovated, and staffed to provide support for residents.
