Located at 749 Pandora Avenue, Mike Gidora Place started as the vision of Cool Aid’s former financial administrator Mike Gidora, and remains the only Cool Aid building named in a person’s honour. Opened in 2000, the building provides 45 units of purpose-built, small suite design, supportive housing for singles.
Like all of Cool Aid’s Supportive Housing buildings, Mike Gidora Place has the security features and 24-hour staffing that ensure its residents have a safe, welcoming home with access to the help they need.
Also incorporated into the building’s main floor is Cool Aid’s Central Services and Housing office space. A report available online outlines the vision and steps undertaken in the development and construction of the property.
Mike Gidora Place is made possible with the support of:
- Province of BC and BC Housing
- Island Health
- City of Victoria (tax exemption)
