BTW I am always up for new learning so I put it out there genuinely... please feel free to enlighten me on the area and history of Hein Road that is relevant to this thread and OP's concerns.

The road bman is talking about is a dump. They have been trying to clean it up but nonetheless it's a dump.

The road is also full of drug user's, dealers, and many pety thives.

A quick Google search of "Hein Rd Kelowna" will fill you in pretty quick. The first thing that pops up is murder on Hein Rd.

The list is endless for that place I have driven by there many times. In my opinion it needs a real face lift by a d11 bulldozer.
I can be the best neighbor or I can be the neighbor from hell choose wisely.

Thxs.... every community has a Hein road unfortunately and often the targeted area in a community for these (and similar) projects--path of least resistance (usually) and cheaper RE.

Back to your concern though .If staffed, programming often includes rules enforced eg., curfews, sobriety, no visitors in units etc etc. And staff are typically very concerned about respecting the neighbors and community with strict enforcement to maintain peaceful living. So if you are staying and I think you said 4 minutes away... should be ok. I still have concerns for homeowners about 'RE values.... and that's the reason I would sell but that's just IMO.

As the OP did not provide a link, I posted the only one I could find above.

Locally the CMHA has a good reputation for its residential programs and those they contract with. Hopefully this continues with the new residence. Not all homeless or those on the verge of becoming homeless are drug users. Some have lost their housing and don't have the funds to secure another home. When you don't have a home, everything else in your life if difficult to maintain. Let's hope this residence serves those needing stability that want to move forward to a more active participation in mainstream society.

sounds like the usual hopeful liberal BS to me.yeah there will be staff and rules but mentally ill people dont care about the rule like normal people do.what exactly is the staff going to do to stop people from walking 2 blocks away and scoring drugs on hein road? that whole neighborhood is a craphole from als cottages to hein .i feel bad for the people who live in that area.they just imported a whole load of problem people on the bottom of leathead and the top of mccurdy.there is a whole lot of families living in that area who dont deserve to have the dregs of society dumped in their laps. for years they have been trying to clean up rutlands image and get rid of the crack hotels on 97.this pretty much is a step backwards.how would you like to book a trip to kelowna and end up staying at days inn to have a hotel full of mental patients 2 doors down? we need to be cleaning this city up not spreading the crap around and having the government pay for it

Just wondering where you guys think this should go? I've seen people upset that it shouldn't be in a nice family area but also that it shouldn't be close to a bad street. Should we segregate the poor and mentally ill away from the rest of us? Because we all know segregation has a great history.

I posted where I think it should go. Right beside or across from the rcmp station

This is social housing all over Kelowna. While there are some areas of Rutland that could use some revitalization, it is not a dump! Most areas of Rutland are filled with ordinary people who manage their lives and keep their properties the same as anywhere else in Kelowna.

I never said ruttland was a dump. I live on a very nice looking street as well and would like it to stay that way.

I said Hein was dump. That's one street of thousands in Kelowna

I wasn't responding to you, gsc!

I used to live in Rutland for many years and know many people who live there. I take umbrage to those who think they are too good to live in Rutland and that it is a "dump". You can't judge a community by a few run-down areas. Many posters on this board would be shocked to know that there are criminals and drug users in EVERY part of Kelowna. At least the ones in Rutland are easier to see and avoid than in the so-called high-class neighbourhoods of Kelowna!
