The building is also home to Directions Youth Services Centre, which serves homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 13 and 24 years. Open 24 hours a day, the centre provides a wide range of supports and services ranging from education and job skills programs, to mental health and addictions support.

The B.C. government arranged approximately $25.6 million in long-term financing, $1 million for pre-development costs and over $5.7 million through the Ministry of Children and Family Development. The City of Vancouver provided approximately $686,000 in municipal reductions and the land valued at approximately $4.7 million.
