Cress Housing & White Buffalo Youth Lodge- Announcements at Media Conference

Cress Housing Corporation, a branch of the Saskatoon Tribal Council unveiled a new 12 unit apartment complex today. The project received funding from all levels of government.

White Buffalo Youth Lodge received funding in a multi-year HPS funding to develop a “Housing First” intensive case management position that will target families experiencing chronic or episodic homelessness. This project will work closely with the Housing First program at Saskatoon Crisis Intervention Services, which is funded by the United Way of Saskatoon and Area.

“Cress Housing Corporation and White Buffalo Youth Lodge, both agencies of the Saskatoon Tribal Council, are providing valuable help for Aboriginal people in Saskatoon. Cress Housing Corporation’s 12-unit apartment will help provide transitional housing for Aboriginal people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. It’s not just a bandage. It includes working with the individuals to move ahead and find permanent housing. With the high cost of living in Saskatoon, this transitional step helps many people who wouldn’t have anywhere else to turn to not only secure a home, but create stability by gaining rent references and building credit.”
