Homelessness Prevention - Nelson

Focuses on preventing homelessness in four priority groups which have been identified as particularly vulnerable to homelessness:

  •     Women (and their children) who have experienced relationship violence or are at-risk
  •     Youth, including those leaving the formal care system
  •     Adults leaving institutional care (e.g. hospital, corrections, treatment centre)
  •     People of Aboriginal descent

Provides wrap-around services that specifically prevent homelessness by offering such supports as rental supplements, life skills support, case planning & integrated case management, and landlord relationship building.
