The long awaited Langley youth homeless shelter has been dropped into place.
A crane could be seen lowering the modular buildings into place at 20285 62 Ave.
A tweet from the @Langleyyouthhub account said now that the building is in place, people are working hard to get the Langley Youth Resource Centre up and running as quickly as possible.
Shelter Modular, located in Aldergrove, put the modular building in place this week.
The new facility will have five beds for emergency sheltering of youth from this community. Currently, youth in crisis have to go to Surrey or Abbotsford if they need shelter.
The centre will expand on services currently provided two days a week by the Langley Youth Hub.
These include: food, bus passes, showers, laundry, clothing, employment opportunities and access to housing.
There are more than 160 youth up to the age of 25 who are identified as homeless in the Langleys.
We are so excited to announce that our new home has been dropped!!! Everyone will be working very hard over the next while to make sure we are all ready to move in as soon as possible! Stay tuned for updates! #langleyyouthhub #langley #youth #langleyyouthresourcecenter #lyrc pic.twitter.com/tIc3BS2rZ6
