Gallatin School
The Gallatin School Living Centre is a 30-unit housing and service complex that provides City Mission clients with safe and affordable long-term housing along with on-site support services. Located in the historic former Gallatin Elementary School, the building was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Twelve of the units are transitional in nature specifically designed for families, and eighteen are SRO (Single Room Occupancy) permanent units for single adults. Each apartment is beautifully remodeled, fully furnished, and has its own kitchen and bath. Residents of the transitional units may live there up to two years, during which time they participate in a comprehensive program of services designed to move them toward self- sufficiency. Tenants must pay one third of their income towards the rent, but because the units are heavily subsidized, nobody is turned away due to an inability to pay. The centre also houses the administrative and service offices of City Mission, a large community room, two laundry areas and two lounge areas. A library/resource room with computers, audio-visual equipment and other resources is available on-site for client use. A large playroom for children is also located in the Gallatin facility.
