The Housing First Program of The Refuge uses a Housing First for Youth approach to work with youth who qualify for the program. Housing First is an evidence based housing philosophy documented in the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s “At Home/Chez Soi” project. It uses the key components of immediate access to permanent housing with no housing readiness requirements, client choice and self-determination, recovery oriented, individualized and client driven supports, and social and community integration. The Refuge’s Housing First Program seeks to model these five components.
The Refuge is currently seeking to fill the position of Housing First Worker. The Housing First Worker will work with an existing caseload and seek to add new youth where possible.
