When individuals have a safe place to call home they are better prepared to focus on wellness and recovery, and that’s what makes our support stand out from the rest. It is our priority to help you secure a home while providing a unique combination of alternative support to help you live a healthy, productive life. Our teams engage directly with landlords, property management companies and individuals to foster positive relationships and coordinate continuous housing stability support.
Our Housing Options
We currently own and operate 6 apartment buildings located in Brampton, Mississauga and Toronto. Each building offers independent living opportunities to individuals experiencing mental health challenges in the community.
Our teams at SHIP work with 20+ community partners and more than 170 landlords to create independent living opportunities for vulnerable individuals. Currently, more than 1100 individuals live independently in their communities with a variety of housing assistance and types. Available supports include counselling, personal support, case management, income support, life skills training and others.
The acquisition of high quality buildings and housing units is very important to the work we do. It means that we can expand our reach and help more people find a safe place to call home while making necessary services available to keep clients healthy and feeling their best. Our units are built with clients in mind and include practical design elements and layouts that meet client needs, and are located in central areas with easy access to public transportation. We strive to make sure all clients feel included in the community and have put measures in place to create engagement opportunities both internally and with our community partners. The professional teams at SHIP connect with clients regularly to ensure units are well maintained and also make time to address any issues as they arise.
