Our second modular housing program located on the Sunshine Coast, Gibsons Modular Housing is the first one to operate in Gibsons. It has 40 self-contained units, including four wheelchair accessible units located on the main floor.
To provide transitional housing and work with program participants on their self-identified and directed goals, and liaise with community resources, including health and social services.
WHO IS INVOLVED
Low-income individuals 19 years of age or older who live in the community, have a history of homelessness in Gibsons, and who need additional support services to maintain housing.
WHAT IT IS
All 40 tenants receive support from a staff team made up by a combination of Tenant Support Workers, Indigenous Cultural Liaison Workers and a Peer Specialist. One meal a day is provided and there is a safe use room as part of our Peer Witness Program. Each unit is furnished with a bed, dresser, small table and chairs and an armchair, has a kitchenette with a microwave, hot plate and small fridge, and its own bathroom. And we welcome pets!
Gibsons Modular has a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) made up of our partners and neighbours, and meets regularly to exchange information, discuss and address concerns, and celebrate successes. Here are the most recent meeting minutes.

This video walkthrough was made of the before the tenants moved into our Modular Housing on Yale Road in Chilliwack, showing the commercial kitchen, dining area and lounge. The Gibsons Modular will look similar to this. It was filmed and edited by Natalie Cotton and her small team – thanks, Natalie!
