SUPPORTIVE HOUSING - WHAT IS IT?
Our supportive housing program strives to provide housing and community for individuals struggling with chronic homelessness and disengagement.
We currently own 4 houses, manage 7 locations - 4 for private landlords, and 3 locations for other non-profit agencies. This currently provides 30 places to live for individuals in the community.
We work with external organizations, volunteers, and our own staff to provide a range of supports for tenants including maintaining housing, connecting with the community, accessing health services, furthering their education, increasing wellbeing, and supporting individuals in whatever goals they strive to reach.
We believe housing is a right.
Through our housing program, we strive to create affordable, safe, and sustainable housing for those struggling with homelessness in our community of Peterborough.
Consider supporting by donating towards the costs of running our housing program. The average cost of supporting an individual in our housing program is approximately $250 per month.
