The build is named for Lore Krill a housing activist in Vancouver, B.C. It would not exist today without pressure from the public to address the issue. The funding to build the Co-op came from the government in the form of a loan to be repaid over 35 years. There are three tiers of membership that have to be maintained. These are people who pay the full housing charge, people who pay a percentage of their income and people who are full subsidized. This gets some homeless of the street, helps those a risk to avoid homelessness and provides sufficient funds to pay for the building. It has allowed many the opportunity to leave street life and peruse a more productive and satisfying life. It also bridges the gap between the different economic class of society and opens a dialog for economic equality.
