WHY ARE WE UNIQUE

In addition to permanent affordable housing, we provide a wide range of services to support recovery for those living with mental health challenges and addictions. Our social programs bring participants together to help address their biggest threats – poverty, social isolation and food security.

Houselink is a solution to homelessness.  We currently house 500 people, including single adults, youth, seniors and families with children.   Our combination of affordable housing and supports keeps over 95% of our residents housed. healthy, and connected year after year.

The economic impact of inadequate housing and homelessness in our City is high. At Houselink a house is more than a roof over one’s head; it represents dignity, security and above all hope. Supportive housing has been identified as a cost-effective model that helps save taxpayer dollars.
