B.C.’s new centre for the homeless after six months

January 26th, 2009 · 8 Comments

I got a chance recently to go out to the new Burnaby Centre for Mental Health & Addictions, the centre that was announced last February by Premier Gordon Campbell as part of a new push to treat the mentally ill + addicted + often homeless and physically sick.

It’s been open since June and taking on some of the most troubled in the Downtown Eastside, people who have a lot of problems and weren’t using the existing services down there for whatever reason. You can read my story about the dream facility they’ve created here.
