Open House at Siloam Mission’s “The Roblin” (Oddfellows Home, 4025 Roblin Blvd.)

On Friday, May 10th, 2024, Heritage Winnipeg’s Executive Director, Cindy Tugwell, and President Greg Agnew attended Siloam Mission’s open House and art show at the newly re-opened former Odd Fellows Home at 4025 Roblin Boulevard, originally built in 1923. This designated building, which is now referred to as “The Roblin”, was purchased by Siloam Mission earlier this year. The space has 32 supportive housing units for seniors and people experiencing homelessness. The units are modern and accessible, with some of the building’s character-defining elements incorporated. Greg and Cindy are very grateful for the amazing tour and are happy to see that this historic building is providing much-needed housing!

Thank you to Siloam Mission for hosting this wonderful event.
