Housing Supports

Housing First

The YMCA of Northern Alberta provides Housing First services in our Wood Buffalo Region. The Housing First ICM Program embraces the principle of Housing First—that every person has the right to a safe, secure home.  The focus is on ending homelessness by providing permanent housing and follow-up support.  Individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness are housed first and then given appropriate supports to address barriers, establish relationships, access resources and improve skills to maintain their housing. Support is provided in an intensive case management setting where participant change is encouraged and promoted based on differing needs, personalities and motivations.
