Attention Guests: 
The east side of Sherbrook St. is under construction until Aug 25th. This construction will greatly hinder vehicle access to RaY. Those coming to our facility will need to access the parking lot via the back lane running between Westminster Ave. and Sarah Ave. We apologize for the inconvenience and will update accordingly.

Rooming Houses to Rooming Homes
In Winnipeg's inner city, and especially in West Broadway and Spence neighbourhoods, older homes converted to rooming houses are an important type of housing for many people living on low incomes. However, rooming houses are fast disappearing due to an uncoordinated policy and regulatory framework and market pressures. In addition, there are many day-to-day problems associated with rooming houses related to challenges of poverty and aging houses. Research finds that these inter-related issues should be dealt with together (CMHC 2002). See the full report:
