402 Erb West – Capital Campaign

Housing for People at Risk of Becoming Homeless

The Campaign

402 Erb West is a small 9 unit building containing one bedroom apartments for individuals for whom affordable rents will make the difference between being housed and homelessness.  SHOW provides intensive supports for our tenants, and for a select few whose lives we have stabilized, 402 Erb West will provide independent living.  The remaining units at 402 will be open to those in the community who are facing homelessness because their CPP is not enough to pay market rents.  The construction of 402 Erb West allows us to open spaces at SHOW for those who need a high level of support, while the new building allows us to house those for whom affordability is key.
