We’re not just housing people. We’re moving them forward in life.
We meet homeless people as they are — many with addiction or mental health challenges — and provide creative and temporary housing for them. A place to call home. With community partners and our supportive services staff, we collectively wrap ourselves around each program participant to deliver supportive services that help them achieve their highest potential.
