Backgrounders

Services, supports provided for supportive housing

All new supportive housing buildings in the province have around-the-clock staffing to help young people, people with disabilities, seniors and others in critical need of housing.

The Province is providing annual operating funding to help those with the highest housing needs to build new beginnings. Experienced staff provide support to tenants, based on their assessed needs. These supports include:

  • on-site supports and connection to additional specialized supports in their community;
  • supports that are tailored to the needs of the residents; health and wellness services, including mental health and addiction treatment programs;
  • individual or group support services, such as life skills training, community information and social and recreational programs;
  • meals;
  • case planning and needs assessment;
  • supports designed to assist residents in meeting their personal and housing goals, including culturally specific programs;
  • help accessing income assistance, pension benefits, disability benefits, obtaining a B.C. identification card or establishing a bank account;
  • support for residents to learn how to operate and maintain a home; and
  • no-cost laundry services, either on site or off site.
