Homeless Prevention Program

Support services & rental supplements to individuals in identified at-risk groups facing homelessness

Homeless Prevention Program

The Homeless Prevention Program is an initiative aimed at providing individuals in identified at-risk groups facing homelessness with portable rent supplements and support services to help them access rental housing in the private (non-subsidized) housing market.

Who We Help
To be eligible, you are at immediate risk of homelessness. This includes:

  • Youth transitioning out of foster care
  • Women who have experienced violence or are at risk of violence
  • Individuals leaving the correctional or hospital systems
  • Individuals of Indigenous descent

Individuals can receive assistance for up to a year in the program.

To Access the Homeless Prevention Program


If you are eligible and approved, the rent supplement can assist with:

  • Your rent
  • Your damage deposit
  • Costs that help you secure housing (for example, getting identification)

The rent supplement cannot be used for:

  • Rent if you are already receiving a subsidy
  • Expenses not related to housing or this program
  • Clinical health and treatment services
  • Medical or clinical staff expenses
  • Daycare expenses
“I’m so grateful for the help that was provided when I was discharged from the hospital. Without it I would have had nowhere to go.”
