HousingWorks is a supported housing program for at-risk and/or homeless youth aged 16-29. Each participant program is paired with a housing worker for up to one year to help them find and maintain safe and affordable housing. HousingWorks debuted in 2015, and now assists up to 15 youth per year on an ongoing basis.
Operation Come Home is an employment, education, and support centre for homeless and at-risk youth aged 16 and up. Learn more about the organization on their website.
About 7 Clarence Street
The NCC has introduced this contemporary building as part of a much larger project to restore five heritage buildings in and around the Tin House Court. The new building at 7 Clarence, designed in close collaboration with the local community, also features universal accessibility, as well as sustainable design (in compliance with LEED® standards).
The building at 7 Clarence has been designed for flexibility of use—to house exhibits, offices or boutiques—but, even more importantly, to form a fitting gateway to the Tin House Court, a gateway that is in keeping with the historic character of the other buildings in this important heritage neighbourhood. This site became the 2017 International Pavilion where each diplomatic mission exhibited and promoted its country’s relationship with Canada.
