Pat Patrick is wheeled up a ramp after experiencing breathing problems at UA, a former university student dormitory now housing formerly homeless people. Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. 01 December 2021. UA is an interim project operated by the Working Centre of Kitchener, a community based nonprofit venture, in partnership with the Region of Waterloo, a government body. Both organisations are responding to the rapid increase in homelessness in the region. UA can house up to eighty individuals and has six to eight people on staff for each of the three daily shifts.
