Main Street Project is thrilled to announce that an amazing local community champion has joined its efforts to transform and redefine shelter and wrap around care in Winnipeg.
CentreVenture’s CEO, Angela Mathieson, has graciously joined Main Street Project’s Building Committee to help transform the Mitchell Fabrics Building into a new healing centre for Winnipeg’s most vulnerable people.
“One of CentreVenture’s guiding mandates is to provide leadership in the planning, development, coordination, and implementation of projects and activities in our city’s downtown,” Mathieson said. “Given the scope and depth of MSP’s shelter re-development plans, it was natural for me to want to be a part of the planning process.”
MSP’s Building Committee has been tasked with planning and redeveloping the agency’s recently acquired space at 637 Main Street. The goal is to transform the building into a state of the art low-barrier shelter that will meet the needs of Winnipeg’s most vulnerable citizens, including those experiencing homelessness, mental health issues and addictions related struggles.
Welcome aboard, Angela. We are lucky to have you on the team!
