Alder House (Kal Naay)

Alder House will be a 19 unit supportive living complex funded and owned by BC Housing and operated under contract by the Queen Charlotte Heritage Housing Society at 136 Second Avenue. It was initiated under the Rapid Response to Homelessness program established by the BC government. The defective modules installed in 2019 have now been removed and the new
building is expected to be completed by December 11, 2020.

The Society’s guiding principle for operating Alder House is “Housing First.” This approach views housing as the foundation for life improvement and enables access to permanent housing without prerequisites or conditions beyond those of a typical renter. Before an individual can successfully address any social, economic, health or addiction issues, they need food and a stable, secure home. Alder House also provides support staff who offer assistance to residents in
upgrading their life skills and in becoming more self sufficient.

Each unit in Alder House has its own private bathroom with shower, as well as its own kitchenette. Residents can choose to cook for themselves or have two meals served daily by staff from the commercial kitchen and enjoyed with fellow residents in the communal dining room and lounge.

Fourteen of the units in Alder House are designated for single people and three units are for couples or small families. The remaining two suites are barrier-free for individuals with mobility issues.
