Transitional Housing - Victoria Street Place

Type of Service

Support Within Housing - Mental Health

Program Description

The transitional home, Victoria Street Place, will provide seven individuals who would otherwise have been homeless or at risk, to have decent affordable housing for up to eight months. Transitional housing is intended to offer a supportive living environment and tools and opportunities for social and skills development. It is an intermediate step between emergency shelter and having no shelter to supportive housing, with limits on the length of stay. The program requires cooperative living where the tenants, in conjunction with staff, will share the responsibility of managing the household.

Access Information

Intake is the first step. All clients should access the intake worker at our office at 111 Elm Street. An intake assessment includes a discussion of opportunities, desired outcomes, and possible referrals to supports and services provided by the Canadian Mental Health Association or other community organizations. The intake worker is also available to assist with issues that require brief service and to provide general information and assistance to family members.
