WRP Affordable housing projectTORONTO - Forty communities of Catholic nuns were among 21 “Affordable Housing Champions” honoured by the City of Toronto June 3.

The sisters were singled out for their WRP Neighbourhood Housing project, which created 38 units of subsidized housing in southeast Scarborough.

The project began as a millennium jubilee project in 1999.

“The women religious congregations of Toronto have never hesitated in their dedication to this project,” said WRP board chair Sr. Jeanine Scarfone of the Sisters of Social Service.
