3 Phases of Opening
The bare minimum to open the space is walls, floor, bathroom, and Red Tent Safer Spaces training for key holders. Volunteer labour has constructed walls and installed flooring; costs to complete an accessible bathroom, pay for supplies, and paint is approximately $2,400. Red Tent Safer Spaces training is estimated at $100.
Mobility Accessible ($7,500)
The bi-level space is designed to be fully accessible. Purchase and installation of the wheelchair lift is estimated at $5,000.
The space will be complete once a certified kitchen is installed and there are furnishings to support diverse use of the space (sound system, tables, and chairs). The estimated cost of kitchen equipment and furnishings is $5,000.
