For close to five years, Farzin Solaimani has housed people, regardless of their backgrounds, at affordable rates in a triplex he owns and lives in on Mississaga Street West.
OrilliaMatters reporter Greg McGrath-Goudie wrote about the landlord who goes above and beyond for his tenants.
The building that formerly housed his family and business, Farzin Photography Studio, has since been converted to accommodate up to 12 residents at a time.
“When I walk downtown … or I go hiking … I see all these people with no place to go, so that really motivated me to do (this),” Solaimani told OrilliaMatters. “I just cannot see past you (if) you're struggling in the snow and wind and cold.”
McGrath-Goudie joins Village Media's "Behind the Scenes" to talk about the story.
