Residential and Housing Program
We provide emergency accommodation for up to 35 clients each night. Our Residential Program ensures the basic physical needs are met by providing each client with:a warm and safe bed, three meals per day, clothing, and personal hygiene products. Guests are also provided with telephone, Internet, computer, and television access.
Young people entering Horizons for Youth have the opportunity to meet with a Housing Worker as well as participate in Ready, Set, Home, a workshop that educates youth on the realities of living independently. The Housing Worker connects clients with resources such as financial assistance and housing listings, and assists them in making phone calls to landlords and attending apartment viewings. Some of the more favourable outcomes of the Housing Program include family reunification or long-term supportive housing.
