SERRA is one of the many community groups participating in a Community Liaison Committee for the new Roehampton Residence.
The Roehampton Residence, located at 808 Mount Pleasant Road, opened on July 3, 2020, to clients as part of the City of Toronto’s three-tiered COVID-19 response. The City has leased the Roehampton Hotel for two years (with an option to extend for a third year) from the property owner. This site has 109 units for up to 174 clients. The Roehampton Residence currently serves about 140 clients. The City’s Shelter, Support and Housing Administration (SSHA) operates the Roehampton Residence.
Since mid-March, the City of Toronto has moved more than 3,900 people throughout its emergency shelter system, including more than 1,500 individuals who have been transitioned to permanent housing, to achieve physical distancing of two meters between shelter beds, in accordance with Ministry of Health guidance for congregate living settings. The City took these urgent actions, which included opening these two programs, to save lives and protect vulnerable people, who are at greater risk of COVID-19 related harms.
