Impact Investment: Littles Place

A Compelling Opportunity to Help Provide Housing to Vulnerable and Homeless Women in Surrey

In 2017, the Society was pleased to provide a $75,000 responsive grant to Atira Women’s Resource Society to renovate the Motel Hollywood located at 9155 King George Boulevard. This was also the first year in which SHHS awarded an impact investment loan, and the inaugural $250,000 loan was disbursed to Atira to assist them in the purchase of the motel. As Atira already owned the two other sites adjacent to the motel, this land assembly created a re-development opportunity that could lead to even more social housing units being created in the future. Atira purchased the motel which would provide 23 units of long-term transitional and supportive housing to women who experience multiple barriers and chronic homelessness. The motel was in desperate need of renovations, and with the financial contribution from SHHS, Atira was able to leverage additional funding to support the purchase and renovations to the motel.
