Two events will take place next week for residents interested in learning about Kingston’s Sleeping Cabin Program. Both are hosted by Our Livable Solutions (OLS) with support from the City of Kingston.

On Monday, Jun. 5, 2023, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. interested residents can join Chrystal Wilson, Acting Executive Director of OLS, in Reddendale Hall (second floor) at the Centre 70 Arena, 100 Days Road. According to a release from the City, this session will include refreshments and a presentation at 5:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A session. An elevator and accessible washroom are available. 

On Wednesday, Jun. 7, 2023, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., OLS is hosting a free screening of ‘Community First, A Home for the Homeless,’ a documentary that profiles an innovative and successful model for mitigating homelessness in Austin, TX. This will take place at the Kingston East Community Centre, 779 Highway 15. Following the film will be a Q&A session about Kingston’s Sleeping Cabin Program, with OLS. 

The City said that registration is not required for either event, and all are welcome to attend. Please contact Lacey Monk ([email protected]) with any questions about the upcoming sessions.

The Sleeping Cabin Program was established in 2022, with support of City Council, Our Livable Solutions and community partners. Since its inception, the sleeping cabin initiative has been successful in assisting individuals exiting homelessness to have a safe place to stay as they transition to permanent housing, according to the City.
