Homelessness Initiative Program (HIP II)

The Homeless Initiative Program works in collaboration with clients who are at risk for homelessness. The goal of our program is to implement skills and supports to ensure that clients are able to maintain the homes that they are currently residing in.

In addition to the provision of rent supplement in partnership with other community partners, our service delivery includes the development of skills and supports to achieve personal goals; Outreach and engagement; Supportive counseling; Crisis intervention and prevention; Personal wellness and coping strategies; advocacy; and referrals to community agencies. Through the use of the Ontario Common Assessment of Need (OCAN) individuals will identify personal goals which their worker will help them achieve.
