“The Indigenous Housing Services Community Hub is Located at 20 Kenilworth Ave N. The community services hub is a place to connect with our Team and houses our life skills programming. Throughout COVID, individuals experiencing homelessness have been able to come to the Community Hub to connect to services, complete referrals, access food security programs and connect with their case managers. Currently, we are open Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-12:00pm.”

The Indigenous Housing Services Department combines multiple housing programs and services in order to meet the housing needs of urban community members who self identify as having indigenous ancestry and who are experiencing homelessness or who have previously experienced homeless.

Indigenous Housings Services primarily consists of a Housing First Program working to house individuals who are experiencing chronic or episodic homelessness and provide them with Intensive case management services for two years to promote long term housing stability. In order to find out more about the program or to complete a self referral please call 905-544-4320 ext. 450.

Indigenous Housing Services also provides case management to the residents of the building Koo gaa da win Manitou Elders Residence owned by Ontario Aboriginal Housing Services. Case managers provide regular programming to meet the health and wellness needs of clients and also provide one on one case management to support long term housing stability.

Client Story: Jessica M.


“I went from losing everything and being homeless, to having just one life changing experience in January 2019, to get me where I am today. Thanks to Indigenous Housing Services, not only did they help me gain stability, they also helped me find affordable housing, and pushed me in the right direction… because of this program and the amazing staff, I’ve become a strong, independent women again, and I couldn’t imagine where I’d be today without them.”
