Grande Prairie Region YMCA
The YMCA Permanent Supportive Housing program is based on the Housing First principles and works with individuals, couples and families who are tenants at Cairn on the Boulevard, Willow Place or access other community-based housing options. The Program Staff work with individuals who would benefit from receiving on-going client supports in order to sustain their housing for the long-term, access services effectively and optimize their ability to direct their own life, make their own choices and improve their quality of life.
Support and Guidance
Clients will have an opportunity to identify their strengths and personal resources and networks, and to address their health, housing affordability, life skills and quality of life needs with their assigned Case Manager or Housing Support Worker. Based on their needs and personal goals, clients will be referred to, and be supported to access, a wide range of community resources and opportunities, physical health, mental health, addictions services, ID, employment and income and other relevant services.
The YMCA Permanent Supportive Housing services team works closely with the client to help them address issues with the landlord that could impact their tenancy and housing stability.
