We support people for as long as they need us.
Our supportive housing programs provide long-term homes with on-site, around-the-clock support for people of all genders, including seniors. We help people deal with physical and mental health issues, trauma and addictions, connect with community and resources, and build independence.
All of the people who live in our facilities have been at risk of, or have experienced, homelessness. Supportive housing enables them to move from one level of support to another based on their current needs and lifestyles.
Shepherds of Good Hope currently operates thirteen supportive housing residences, located throughout the city of Ottawa from Kanata to Rideau-Rockcliffe. Two of these residences are currently in development at 216 Murray Street and 1095 Merivale Road.
By the end of 2022, Shepherds of Good Hope will officially have more people in supportive housing than in our shelter programs!
