Housing First is a proven approach that prioritizes providing stable and permanent housing for unhoused individuals without preconditions or barriers.
We receive funding from The Government of Alberta through Homeward Trust Edmonton to manage a dedicated Housing First team.
We have a team of Housing Outreach Workers who are instrumental in providing invaluable support to individuals experiencing homelessness, assisting them in securing crucial elements such as income, identification, bank accounts, and tailored housing solutions that align with their unique requirements.
We also have a Follow-up Support Team who assists clients in various areas for one year after finding housing. This support includes but is not limited to; connecting individuals with healthcare professionals to address medical needs, facilitating access to residential treatment programs, assisting with the process of reconnecting with their families, and providing guidance and resources for employment opportunities.
We proudly piloted the Housing First initiative in Edmonton.
