Established in 1981, Gabriel Housing first focused on single family homes to aid aboriginal people moving from reserves to the city.
Many of Gabriel Housing's staff and board have been with the organization for years, if not since its infancy. Hamilton said the organization has its eye on succession planning Converse Sneakers Sale Australia to ensure the survival of the organization in the future.
"We probably have the most affordable rents in the whole city," said Ray Hamilton, president of Gabriel Housing's board.
By the new year, two three or four bedroom duplexes on St. John Street will be home to families in need. On Monday, council also approved a six unit building on Edward Street, whose tendering for construction should go Converse All Star Sneakers For Unisex
"Getting land has been our biggest issue," said Hamilton, pointing to cost, and competition with larger housing organizations and developers.
Hamilton said the organization is feeling the pressures of Regina's housing situation. Every six months, it updates its applicants list, which as of late has been 150 200 names long.
"At the time, the housing crunch wasn't as big as it is now, but we had identified (it was) going to be. We knew there was something coming and now it's happened. We would have been ahead of the game," Hamilton said, referring to the development that fell through.
Ray Hamilton, board president of Gabriel Housing Corp., at the site of a future affordable housing project at 176 St. is today announcing the construction of a new affordable housing project, one of two multi unit complexes the organization is building in attempts to offer families relief from Regina's tricky housing market.
The two new developments, for instance, will be rented out for $800 $900 per month, the most expensive of the organization's 300 plus units because of their size. The lowest units go for about $350.
"When you (are) paying high rents and high utility bills and you have a larger family, say, three or four kids, it's almost impossible to stay alive."
Funding dampens Gabriel Housing's ambitions as well. In the beginning, 25 year mortgages supported many of its projects. Now, subsidies are hard to come by, and Hamilton said federal funding for housing seems to dwindle more each year.

"People just can't afford it," said Hamilton of renting in Regina.
Hamilton said this model requires people to adapt to a different lifestyle of living communally. It also tends to invite more criticism from neighbours.
To get around that problem, and keep rental and maintenance costs low, Gabriel Housing has been razing some of its older singlefamily homes and replacing them with multi unit complexes. Such is the case on St. John Street.
On Monday, council heard from a resident concerned over the pressures the Edward Street build would place on the sewer system in the area.
Gabriel Housing has delved into larger buildings before: It has two 12 suite complexes, and a smattering of smaller scale developments.
A 20 unit project was once nixed after the city backed away due to resident complaints,"A little bit of controversy always seems to (make) people shy away," he said.
He thinks the current council is tackling the housing situation more aggressively.
later, the organization is increasingly shifting gears to multi unit buildings that support, for the most part, families burdened by Regina's high rental prices, low vacancy rates and dearth of accommodations for large numbers.
Gabriel Housing adapts to city's demands
Some three decades Converse All Star Shoes Mens
introduced challenges for Gabriel Housing as well.
The St. John Street project, though, is receiving the bulk of its cost $800,000 through the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation. Looking ahead, Gabriel Housing is hoping to reignite its construction company. Founded in the early 2000s, it fell apart as employees moved on to other work. Hamilton said a similar entity could reduce costs by accomplishing much of the maintenance work inhouse. It would also serve as a training opportunity for young labourers.
