|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||A one year transitional housing program open to men, women and their children with a focus on families who are homeless due to issues with poverty, physical disability, mental health, domestic violence and family breakdown.
During their stay residents are given support through individual meetings with a support worker, support groups and a wide range of life skills workshops.
Some examples of support groups provided are: life skills, co-dependency, healthy relationships, women’s group, and advocacy. After residents move out, they are guided towards ongoing support programs available in the Niagara Region.
Many continue with supports through outreach programs while transitioning to the next stage which helps to ensure housing retention, a stable safe environment and connection to resources and services.
One unit is accessible and designed for individuals with disabilities.
