Martyshuk Housing Preys on the Homeless
I worked in inner city homelessness in Edmonton for 5 years. I think it’s only fair that the public knows about what this company and affiliates (Dwaynes Housing) (Pyramid Housing) are doing to prey on the homeless.
They are essentially profiteers that do not treat the homeless humanely. The have no interest in helping anyone. They house the homeless in deplorable conditions because they want their medication scripts. They are made to sign a “medication agreement” on receiving housing. The daily dispense fee is currently 12.50 per day per dispense. The average person is on 4 meds a day. Some are to be taken 4 times a day. There are individuals who are taking as many as 40 dispenses a day…that is rare but it happens.
So…in certain cases profits of 500 a day or more are being made by these profiteers on a single person. None of these profits go back into housing or support needs. Dave Marytshuk in particular likes to present himself as a “homeless champion” but really? He’s a predator filling his pockets with the profits made from the very vulnerable.
