HomeBase houses our community’s most vulnerable homeless population by providing intensive case management support. Our clients face complex issues – often a combination of physical health, mental health and addictions. Those accepted into the program receive support for a minimum of one year, but are supported through wrap-around services as long as they need.
The first step for HomeBase is securing housing for clients. Each client then works with a case manager to develop goals and actions that address the root cause of their homelessness, helping them establish lasting stability.
HomeBase has five key goals:
- Clients will remain stably housed
- Clients will reduce justice, legal and health service usage (i.e. fewer emergency room visits and decreased number of police interactions)
- Clients will improve self-sufficiency (i.e. secure stable source of income and achieve personal goals)
- Clients will engage in mainstream services (i.e. improve social networks, access available social services such as food banks)
- Clients will have their needs met
To be accepted into the HomeBase program, clients must be:
- 18 years of age or older,
- Homeless for six months or longer, and
- Living with vulnerabilities in physical health, mental health or addictions.
A doctor, service provider, or other professional can refer a client (no self-referrals please). For more information please contact us at 403-277-9865 or email@example.com.
