MISSION STATEMENT

To provide a sober-living environment for single women and men who are experiencing housing instability and whose path to stability requires a supportive and substance-free environment.

ABOUT

"...an innovative approach to filling this housing gap through a facility that provides abstinence-based housing in a community context with strategic supportive services on-site."

INITIATIVE

Winnipeg Supportive Housing Inc., in partnership with Riverwood Church Community, plans to construct a 40-unit housing complex that takes aim at poverty by developing supportive and safe housing for 40 of Winnipeg’s at-risk population in the emerging neighborhood of Elmwood.

INNOVATION

A recovery housing complex serving those impacted by both addictions and housing instability whose path to recovery requires a substance free environment. Recovery housing seeks to increase success rates by addressing housing as a core issue and bringing together the necessary strengths and supports to achieve long-term recovery through a client centred approach and without any restrictions to timeline.

 

THE SUITES

Forty self-contained studio suites of 223 to 342 square feet, with shared spaces for programming and peer-support, are designed to enable participants to establish a sense of control in areas that most people take for granted. Fully independent units create a housing environment that builds life-skills and avoids creating co-dependency.

 

GALLERY

The building is currently under design development planning phase. We expect to have a building permit by June 2019; hope to have confirmation of Government funding by fall 2019; and start building in early 2020 for completion by late 2020
