Phoenix Place Apartments – 171 Dunn Avenue (at King and Dufferin Street), Toronto
AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN TORONTO
Harvey has been on the Board of Directors of Parkdale United Church Foundation (PUCF) since 2007. The Foundation has 35 years of experience running a successful non-profit affordable housing apartment tower. Phoenix Place Apartments has never received rent subsidies for its residents, yet offers 146 bachelor and one-bedroom units priced well below the local market rate.
Toronto is in desperate need of more low-income housing. Our waiting list of 150 persons (four to six years long) mainly consists of new immigrants as well as “hard to house” individuals. Our organization provides supportive housing services and resources to its residents, including counselling, referral to other agencies, and a food bank.
