The Reaching Home program is dedicated to Nogojiwanong’s clients who are currently homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless. The program focuses on the prevention and reduction of homelessness and housing.
Reaching Home encourages partnerships that contribute to a more sustainable and comprehensive continuum of support designed to help the homeless move to self-sufficiency and to prevent those at risk from becoming homeless. The program assists clients in developing basic life skills which will help in self-motivation and independence. The Reaching Home program operates based on identified community needs ranging from transitional houses to housing workers while providing cultural safe supports to Indigenous people experiencing homelessness.
- To ensure that homeless people and those at imminent risk of homelessness are provided longer-term housing solutions, shelter, and support and prevention services;
