Fifty-two people who are homeless or at risk of it will find stable homes when a new supportive-housing project opens in Parksville this month.

The modular housing complex will be staffed with two or more people 24 hours a day and offer employment training, health services and counselling to residents.

“To move from being homeless to being able to live in a beautiful place like this with all the supports, they’re going to be able to stabilize their lives,” said Sheila Malcolmson, MLA for Nanaimo.
