Our interdisciplinary team supports individuals who have experienced chronic homelessness; many of whom have also struggled with addiction, mental and physical health concerns. We provide support based on principles of housing first, harm reduction, recovery, and choice. Our team of five Intensive Case Managers, an Occupational Therapist and a Primary Health Care Nurse has the capacity to support 55 individuals. We assist people to locate an appropriate, safe apartment of their choice and then provide ongoing, individualized support to help people to develop meaningful goals and enhanced independence.
MOSH Housing First is a project supported by the Federal Homelessness Partnering Strategy, Housing Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Health Authority, Halifax Regional Municipality and numerous community partner agencies.
