Support & Housing – Halton supports over 850 people every year. Providing excellence in Supportive Housing, Peer Support and Recovery since 1982.
In 2008, we began to further articulate our beliefs as reflected in our document on being a Person Centred Agency and embraced fully the Recovery Philosophy embodied in our motto ”Sowing Seeds of Hope”. More recently, we have expanded our continuum of supportive housing to include seniors at Bonnie Place II and St. Andrews, and LIFEHouse, a home for youth in Acton. In 2011, we ventured into a further partnership with ADAPT to provide a supportive housing program for those living with addictions. In addition, TAY, a youth centred cross-sectoral approach to integration, was initiated to effectively transition youth into the adult system. In 2013, we achieved formal Accreditation through the Centre for Accreditation. Most recently, we have become further emboldened in our strategic directions as reflected in our refreshed vision and mission statements…so that all may have “a life worth living”.
In 2014, we welcomed Grace House into our organization, who merged their full operations within SHH. Grace House is an Oakville based residence which provides affordable, supportive, transitional housing for 10 individuals. This merger furthers the work of SHH to enable us to have a full continuum of affordable housing with supports within Halton.
