BC Housing is holding an information session about newly proposed housing options and support programs in Maple Ridge on Monday night.
This comes after the provincial government announced funding to address the issue of homelessness in the city, following years of public pressure and a recent battle over the Anita’s Place homeless camp.
But Listen Chen with Alliance Against Displacement says one problem with the proposal is that there are only 40 units of supportive housing going in.
“As we know from the homeless people count, that the Anita Place residence did back in October, that there are about 200 homeless people in Maple Ridge,” they said.
