Operated in partnership with BC Housing, Killarney Apartments was RainCity Housing’s first housing program located outside of Vancouver’s Downtown East Side. Killarney offers a peaceful and quiet neighbourhood which supports goals of long term recovery from mental health challenges and trauma.
To provide supportive permanent housing for people who have been homeless and are living with complex mental health issues.
WHO IS INVOLVED
Many of the tenants at Killarney Apartments are actively working on their recovery and connecting to their community.
WHAT IT IS
29 units, a mix of 1 bedroom and studio suites. Tenants may choose to participate in a low cost dinner program, and for those who require it, there’s a medication administration program. One staff is on-site at all times, and there is a part-time recreational worker to help tenants identify and work towards their goals.
Some people thrive in busier environments. Some of us are drawn to more peaceful and simple surroundings. Tenants at Killarney can go about their day creating their own routine away from the more hectic Downtown.
