Providing work opportunities to support transitional housing programs
Right at Home Housing Society launched its Supportive Tenant Employment Program and Services (STEPS) social enterprise in 2019, in hopes to expand our current casual labour program in which tenants learn skills and earn extra income. Through this service we are now helping support two additional organizations as they operate their transitional housing programs. We have more of our residents growing their employment skills and making an income and just as importantly, they are part of collaborative efforts to overcome homelessness in the community. We appreciate being able to work alongside Niginan Housing Ventures and Boyle Street Community Services, whose transitional housing programs are making a positive contribution to the community.
