Fred Victor’s historic site at the corner of Queen and Jarvis Streets has been providing a refuge for people since 1894. In 1986, it was transformed into our first permanent, affordable housing site and today, there are 76 shared units available to both men and women. Before moving in, many tenants spent years living rough outdoors, in city shelters, in unhealthy sub-standard accommodations or in a correctional or health institution.
Staff is on-site 24 hours a day to offer support, answer questions about Fred Victor programs and services and give referrals to doctors, dentists, legal help, training and employment opportunities.
Our Open House Drop-in Program is on the main floor so every Monday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., all of our residents are welcome to stop in for a coffee, juice and a healthy snack, connect with others and meet with a counsellor.(hyperlink Open House Drop-in Centre to that page.)
