Our Programs

We run a wide range of programs, each with the goal of helping people experiencing homelessness to find and keep a home.

Finding a place to live is just the first step; it’s the day-to-day services that make the difference in individuals keeping their homes. We help people with a broad range of housing-related needs and we support their well-being.

Who We Serve

We’re here to end homelessness, one person at a time.

We believe that each person matters — homelessness prevention isn’t about numbers, it’s about individuals.

Our programs are designed to support people who have experienced homelessness or are experiencing housing instability — without conditions and without judgment.

Our wraparound supports are for Options clients who are seeking a home, have recently moved into a new home, or have been tenants for years.

Whether a Options client wants support with mental health, substance use, hoarding behaviours, or accessing community services, there’s someone at Options Housing who can help.

“The services provided have been very well thought out. I’ve gained confidence and support to carry on with my everyday life.”

Solving homelessness is about more than finding housing.

Our tenants also need support with setting up their new homes, accessing services, connecting with community, and more. Whatever your skill set, you can be part of the solution.
