SOSJ is in partnership with Bloom Group to build a new hospice in the downtown eastside serving Vancouver’s most marginalized citizens. The St John Hospice at May’s Place will be a 10,000 square-foot facility occupying the fourth floor of a new building. The first three floors will provide comprehensive medical, social welfare, and addiction services provided by Vancouver Coastal Health Authority (VCH). The floors above the hospice will provide social housing. The land is being donated by VCH and the developer is BC Housing. SOSJ is pledging $1.5M, distributed over four years, towards the creation of this $4M hospice project.
