Often when prisoners are released back into the community, they face a range of difficulties, particularly after a long term of incarceration. Our re-entry program helps former prisoners, including those with disability, to successfully reintegrate into the community.
Our community housing initiatives are driven by our commitment to help communities thrive so that everyone can enjoy a life of belonging, hope and purpose. This includes people with disability, those experiencing mental illness, prisoners returning to the community and women escaping family and domestic violence.
If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness, or at risk of being without a place to call home, we have a range of support services that can assist. Our teams work with individuals and families to better connect with community and access affordable housing options.
