Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH)
PSH is a 17-bed program located on the 2nd floor of Centre of Hopes main building with 24/7 support staff. This program works to provide an inclusive, harm-reduction and recovery-based home for individuals who were experiencing chronic homelessness prior to entering PSH and have been identified with extensive barriers to independent housing. Our PSH program is established from evidence-based practices to ensure each resident is provided with adequate support to increase their longevity in housing and self-efficacy. The program provides voluntary access to a flexible and comprehensive array of support services and places no limits on length of tenancy if terms and conditions of the lease or agreement are met. There is an extensive focus on resident engagement, behavioral health care, intensive case management services, life skills training, cultural components and more. The most integral components of the PSH program are resident choice, optional services, harm-reduction supports via an onsite managed alcohol program and protection of tenancy.
