Following on the successes of the work done by our Housing Department’s Rooming House Project, Dixon Hall is thrilled to announce that we will be renovating and revitalizing several Cabbagetown rooming houses to provide affordable housing options for those in need.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on Dixon Hall and the many community agencies we work with in the city. No one could have imagined the health crises, the economic turmoil, the stress placed on systems across the city and beyond. And, yet, through this dark time, moments of light and warmth have shone through.
As closures of services and businesses were mandated in the city of Toronto earlier this year, Dixon Hall Music School adapted quickly to ensure continued support for its young musical community.
Many years ago, I had the privilege of completing my Master’s degree in conflict analysis and management with some of the world’s leading practitioners in this field. At the time, I was unable to articulate how important I knew this learning was going to be in my life, and why I was so interested in conflict resolution. Today, there is no need to explain it.
When you live in a rooming house practicing physical distancing can be difficult. Our team has been heartened to see Rooming House Project tenants coming together to support each other during these challenging times.
