Boarding Home Site Support

The Boarding Home Site Support program assigns teams of service providers to support each site within our portfolio. These teams visit sites on a regular basis to provide support to the tenants who live there and to boarding home operators and their staff.

Services Offered

The services offered by the Boarding Home Site Support program typically include:

  •     Regularly scheduled visits to each site (1 to 3 times per week);
  •     Delivery of services that support and enrich each individual housing setting, based on the regular assessment and identification of needs in each housing setting;
  •     Facilitation of group activities and events which foster tenant engagement, participation, the development of social networks, education and skill acquisition;
  •     Provide individual support to tenants, as time allows, in the areas of community orientation, linking to other
  •     services and professional supports, situational dispute resolution and informal counselling and guidance;
  •     Coordination of an annual training and education series for housing providers and their staff; and
  •     Establishment and maintenance of ongoing supportive relationships with all of those living and working in each housing setting.
