Prince Rupert Port Authority Invests in Renovations at Trinity Men’s Recovery Home


PRINCE RUPERT, BRITISH COLUMBIA – The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) announced today its investment of over $20,712 towards renovations at the 333 Trinity Men’s Recovery House in Prince Rupert, BC. 

Through its Community Investment Fund, PRPA partnered with the 333 Recovery Homes Society and other community partners to invest a total of $ 42,712 into upgrading the Recovery House, enabling improved support for the intake of new clients and their personal recovery plans.  New additions include an enhanced reception office, personal lockers, new outdoor storage, and other services that improve operations and ensure exceedance of regulatory standards.  

The 333 Trinity Men’s Recovery House is a local live-in service for men who are recovering from addictions, and is currently the only one operating in Prince Rupert. The facility has nine beds available for its clients, who live together at the home while working through the program. One of the many commitments the men make daily is to give back to the community through volunteering regularly.

“This renovation was made possible through support we received from the Prince Rupert Port Authority. It allows us to speed up the intake process of men when they first arrive here at the house. Our focus is to get someone new settled and into recovery as quickly as possible. There is a lot of paperwork required, and our new office gives our staff and clients the privacy they need to complete an intake,” said Graham Edwards, Program Coordinator at the 333 Trinity Recovery House. “We are very grateful to PRPA for recognizing the value of the work we do here and supporting us.”

“The Prince Rupert Port Authority is proud to support the 333 Trinity Men’s Recovery Home and the men there who are working through the challenge of the recovery process,” said Shaun Stevenson, President and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority. “Our organization is stronger through supporting the communities we live and work in throughout our region.”
