Letter: I live beside Freedom’s Door

Kelowna letter writer says he lives next door to four apartments in the Freedoms Door program

To the editor:

I am a resident of Centennial Crescent and am a next door neighbour to four duplex homes containing 40 men who are in an addiction recovery program known as Freedom’s Door.

I have lived here for two years and I have never experienced any problems as a result of being near a recovery home. My experience with this neighbour has always been positive.

I understand that Freedom’s Door has a proposal to construct a 49-unit apartment in Rutland for the graduates of Freedom’s Door. I can assure the neighbours of that property that their experience is likely to be as positive as mine has been.
