First United to get a huge makeover

Date 6 Nov, 2020

Jen St Denis from The Tyee covers our plans to redevelop our building at 320 East Hastings Street in her article “First United Church, a Downtown Eastside Institution, to Get a Huge Makeover”.

“Today, First United’s programs range from a meal program, medical care, tax filing services, help accessing and appealing government benefits, legal help fighting evictions and social programs meant to foster a sense of community and connection.

The new building will include a bigger kitchen so food service programs can be expanded, more space for adult education programs and a dedicated space where people who need rest during the day can come and sleep.”
