We invite you to be a part of the change.
Housing First is a recovery-oriented supportive housing approach that operates on the principle that homeless people living with mental illness should be offered immediate access to rent supplements so they can live in the same kinds of permanent independent apartments that are typically available to people without mental illness, and that housing should be provided without requiring participation in psychiatric or substance use treatment. Self-determination, choice and harm reduction are at the centre of all considerations with respect to the provision of housing and support services.
Clients are offered the supports and clinical services of a full-service ACT team including medical, counselling and community supports.

The CC supports the Team Leader in ensuring that the team meets fidelity standards for the ACT model, and that RainCity Housing’s values and philosophy of self-determination/choice, harm reduction and recovery are expressed in all aspects of team practice. The CC demonstrates leadership by developing a collaborative trans-disciplinary practice that is flexible and dynamic so as to meet the needs of people who have not been well served by traditional mental health services.
