On Sunday, April 25, Rideau Park recognized the work of the Multifaith Housing Initiative in construction of Veterans’ House in Ottawa. The Eastern Ontario Outaouais Regional Council (EOORC) of the United Church of Canada made a commitment to fundraise for the construction of Veterans’ House: the Andy Carswell Building. Veterans’ House is Multifaith Housing Initiative’s fifth housing community and is a 40-unit supportive housing residence for veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Veterans’ House residents will have access to mental health and addiction services, a dog park for training their service dogs, social activities and programming, and plenty of communal space to allow for collaboration and community building.
