H.O.S.T (Housing Outreach & Support Team)
Director: Lea Vares Greenwood
Through this program, individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and live with significant mental health challenges are relocated from the street, temporary shelters or inappropriate housing to stable, secure, affordable apartments. Good Shepherd Non-Profit Homes has developed relationships and lease agreements with private landlords scattered throughout the City of Toronto. Support to tenants is provided by Community Mental Health Workers on two mobile teams.
All applications for supportive housing must go through The Access Point which provides streamlined coordinated access to a number of mental health and supportive housing agencies in Toronto. www.theaccesspoint.ca
