People who live in supportive housing have one thing in common: without help, they would struggle to find and maintain housing. 

Some are elderly, some have young families and some live with complex health challenges. Many have experienced homelessness, domestic violence or other traumatic circumstances. But when they walk through the doors of a supportive housing building, they find a permanent home. They sign a lease, pay rent and live in a home they can decorate and make their own.

Every supportive housing site is unique. Developments have been designed around Indigenous culture, family supports, and experiences of addiction. There might be a cooking class in the common area, an Elder to help connect with culture or someone to help plan out their finances. Services might include occupational therapy, addictions counselling or mental health support. No matter the time of day, staff are always on-site.
