Housing Support

The Region of Peel has been in touch with The Journey and twice a week, starting this Thursday, August 8th they will have Housing Support Workers on site at The Journey to assess your needs and to assist you. 

The Housing Support Workers will:

  • assess the needs of each impacted tenant/family
  • develop in partnership with families, plans to address their needs
  • assist families in finding temporary or permanent housing, starting with options closest to Ardglen and working out from there
  • provide financial assistance where tenants are eligible and using existing eligibility criteria – this may include rent subsidies, assistance with last month’s rent, payments for storage and moving costs etc.
  • transportation assistance (bus tickets)
  • support the families to move into their new permanent or temporary homes by making connections and referrals to needed services and supports
  • make referrals to other services and supports as required

 

If you would like to meet with a Housing Support Worker.  Email Kevin Birmingham (kevin.b@thejourneymail.ca), or drop in and fill out a form and we will set a time.  The workers will be here at The Journey from 1:00pm through 3:15pm on Thursday, August 8th.  They will then be here twice a week afterwards!
