What We Do
(...we believe it to be the best model to achieve lasting transformation in reducing poverty and homelessness.)
The first thing everyone needs is safe, affordable, and permanent housing. Our tiny homes are beautiful too! But housing is just the beginning: we are also community builders, where the community becomes the healing agent.
Our vision is to see people overcome barriers to a full and independent life. The developmental supports we offer help community members achieve their goals. This includes access to substance use recovery counselling, opportunities to improve health and education, and more.
It is person-centric, trauma-informed, recovery oriented and strength-based.
We tap into the power of purpose and meaningful work, by providing low barrier, patient and progressive employment opportunities that help people learn, grow and succeed in re-entering the workforce.
How Can I Help?
