Transitional, 24-unit housing project opens

Posted: June 19, 2007 in Headlines

Twenty-five to 30 homeless aboriginal seniors in the city will soon have a place to call their own for a while.

A transitional 24-unit housing complex called Koo Gaa da win Manitou — it means Sharing the Spirit — opened yesterday at 42 Mary St. Residents will start moving in by July, among them a man who has been living on the streets all winter. The $3-million project has been three years in the making. Hamilton’s First Native agencies are thrilled their efforts to help native seniors have finally come to fruition.

(EDIT: This is of course very good news. NOBODY in this Country should be without a place to call home, but doesn’t the timing of it seem a bit coincidental?)
