Addictions Supportive Housing
A Partnership between Fife House and McEwan Housing and Support Services/LOFT Community Services
The Addictions Supportive Housing Program is a newly funded program by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, in conjunction with the Local Health Integration Network. The ASH Program is a housing first model focused upon assisting community members living with HIV/AIDS who have a history of homelessness, problematic substance use issues and who have a history on inpatient hospitalizations and/or frequent use of emergency health services. Fife House Foundation will provide 32 single-dwelling housing units, available on the private market with rent subsidies, and McEwan/Loft Community Services will provide intensive case management support, with a ratio of one case manager to eight clients. The ASH Program is also linked to the Service Coordination Project for Homeless People Living with HIV/AIDS, as the assessment and referral source, and also as resource for health stabilization, respite care, primary care reconnection, and mental health assessment and consultation.
