Desmond House is a 27-unit Single Room Occupancy (SRO) building that was purchased by BC Housing in 2007, and is now operated by Cool Aid. Residents have access to a single private room with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities.
The tenants take great pride in their surroundings and have worked with the staff to create a strong, healthy community that is based on cooperation and respect for each other. The staff promote recreational activities and other opportunities for socialization, and ensure that the building remains a safe and clean environment.
