Blossom House to reopen after fire in 2021

A home that provides services to women struggling with mental health, addiction, or who are victims of domestic violence, will reopen.

Blossom House was destroyed by fire in September 2021.

Crossroads for Women Case Manager Stephanie Carver says they will soon have a new home with six units.

“We do have two tenants that are preparing to move in in the middle of January, and we’re hoping to have the other four units filled by the first of February,” Carver says.

This is thanks to funding and loans from the three levels of government announced last week.

“We do focus on higher acuity, meaning mental health and addictions can be part of the equation. We want to provide them with the wraparound services and provide them each with case management so that we can help them to move along, on that continuum that everyone talks about.”

Tenants are single women, with no children and they can stay as long as they need to. Carver says there’s no shortage of women who are looking for housing, but there is a process they go through first to get accepted into Blossom House.

“They have to be stable, looking to overcome some of their life challenges and be willing to accept the program and the support that we’re offering. That’s the big requirement. After that, we work in collaboration with other agencies to get them resources, and if we can’t provide it, we’ll find somebody who can.”

The location of Blossom House is kept confidential due to privacy and safety reasons.
