EVERYONE DESERVES SUPPORT.
Support House is a not-for-profit charitable agency that takes a values-driven approach to provide Mental Health and Substance Use support to our community with:
- Person-directed supports that put people first. Connection and engagement through conversation so we can be reflexive and responsive. A culture that inspires health and wellness.
Housing: We offer a full range of supportive housing options for people unhoused with mental health and/or substance use concerns – from highly-intensive, staff-supported residences to community supports through rent subsidies with private landlords. The staff team supports multiple needs and assists in connecting with additional supports in the community such as interdisciplinary health teams. We support individuals to transition to more independent housing.
Support Coordination: We provide a menu of supports that responds to the needs of youth aged 16-24 and adults who experience mental and/or substance use issues in Halton. We offer support coordination, housing, peer support, harm reduction and trauma informed care with a DEI lens, navigation, and distress/crisis support.
Peer Support: The Centre for Innovation in Peer Support provides community and system capacity through offering accessible peer services and enhancing peer service capacity through training and mentorship for peers.
We facilitate, coordinate and meet multiple needs with agency and system partners.
Housing Development and Capital Campaign: We have two significant housing redevelopment projects currently underway with the Region of Halton:
- Cornwall Road, Oakville – a $20M 5-storey 37 unit supportive housing apartment building (2026/27). Maria Street, Acton – a $8.7M 12 one-bedroom accessible apartment units supportive housing model (2025)
To fund these essential community projects, we need to plan and implement our first ever Capital Campaign with an ambitious goal to raise $4 million dollars.
