Joanne Wilson Honoured With Supportive Housing Program Dedication

October 12, 2017

“On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff at PACE, we are proud to dedicate the naming of the PACE supportive housing program located in the PanAm site at 20 Palace Street to the “Joanne Wilson Program” to honour our former long-time Executive Director, Joanne Wilson”, said Bill Noble, Board Chair. 

PACE opened the doors on this supportive housing program to clients over a year ago - in May 2016.  This was very significant as the units in this building were the first new units that PACE had opened in over 20-years!  The Palace Street building was part of the Pan Am/Para Pan Am athletes’ village in 2015.  It is owned and managed by housing and community service organization - Fred Victor.  The goals for this building are to provide permanent housing especially for single adults, youth and families with high needs for affordable housing and on-site support services.
