3030 Gordon is two programs in one. Both the first purpose built shelter in Coquitlam, and our first project in the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody), it’s located one block from the Coquitlam/Port Coquitlam border, so we work closely with both municipalities.
To provide an emergency shelter and supported housing for people who are homeless in the Tri-Cities.
WHO IS INVOLVED
The people who access the shelter might have been homeless for decades, or just days, and have a history in the Tri-Cities. The folks living in the supported housing units have been homeless in the past and have roots in the Tri-Cities.
WHAT IT IS
The emergency shelter has 30 private rooms, 20 for men and 10 for women, and people have access to three meals a day. The supported housing side has 30 units of housing, each with its own kitchen and bathroom. In the past, through thousands of hours from hundreds of volunteers, the citizens of the Tri-Cities were able to help many people stay warm and dry every winter for seven years. Because of this history and our partnerships in the Tri- Cities, 3030 Gordon includes RainCity’s first formal volunteer program.
