Site Support Services

Cota’s Boarding Home Site Support program assigns teams of service providers to support tenants within the Habitat Services boarding home system and to some apartments and co-op settings operated by Mainstay Housing. The teams visit sites on a regular basis to provide support to the tenants who live there and also to boarding home operators and their staff. Services include the facilitation of group activities and events which foster tenant engagement, the development of social connections, education and skill development. The teams also 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.

To make a referral: this Cota service is offered to the tenants that Habitat Services and Mainstay Housing admit to specific housing sites. As such, Cota does not accept referrals for this program from other sources.

Community Paramedic Led Clinic Partnership at Cotas Inspiring Change Event

The Community Paramedic-Led Clinic is a new initiative in Central East-LHIN (Scarborough) and a first of its kind in the GTA. It is a partnership between Toronto Paramedic Services, Hong Fook Mental Health Association and Cota. Cota’s GMH Case Manager works in collaboration with the other partner organizations to provide weekly health clinics in five (5) Toronto Community Housing buildings in the Scarborough area. The program provides home visits to tenants living in the building with a history of frequent ambulance use or emergency department visits. The Paramedic-Led Clinics and home visits will assess the social-economic, environmental, and medical needs of the individual and ensure referrals to various community agencies.

This Cota service is offered to the tenants living in one of the five (5) Toronto Community Housing buildings in the Scarborough area. For information about the program call Community Paramedic Unit Line (416)-397-4322.
