    Care and monitoring provided by someone on a regular basis (even daily) but not constantly available
  • Light Intensity Supported Housing
    Independent living units with support provided through a case manager, or surveillance by landlord, or occasional support worker

Community Support and Independent Living Services

We support clients to live independent and self-sufficient lives in the community and receive support and/or treatment in their own environment that is appropriate to their needs. 

Dependent on the community in which you live, this can be done in a number of ways.

  • Subsidized housing, rent subsidies and other housing resources
  • Supportive counselling and psycho-education to individuals, groups, and families
  • Psychiatric consultation and review
  • Psycho-social rehabilitation programs
  • Connection with community resources and navigation of healthcare and social systems
  • Occupational therapy for the skills of daily living 
  • Vocational support services
  • Peer support

Often, care plans are developed in collaboration with the client or with support of their family and friends.

The programs we offer are collaborative, strengths-based and person-directed. We want to improve the quality of life for our clients with community integration, recovery support and independent living skills.

Dependent on the area in which you live, you will be able to access our services through your mental health and substance use clinician or via a referral.
