The city of Vancouver is investing more than $1 million into its Safe Stay communities to help people experiencing homelessness find temporary housing.

On Monday, the Vancouver City Council approved $389,600 for the city to rent mobile hygiene units and $629,014 to purchase additional office and modular units. The money will be distributed between the second Safe Stay community, known as Hope Village; a third site in development in downtown Vancouver; a fourth proposed site; and a fifth that is budgeted.
