Funding to connect those with mental health and addiction with places to live

MISSISSAUGA, ONT. – The Ontario government is providing $270,000 in operational funding for rent supplements and mental health and addictions support services for 40 new supportive housing units in Mississauga, Ont.

The government also recently provided $4.5 million in capital funding through the Social Services Relief Fund to help build the 40-unit development.

The Streetsville project, operated by Indwell Community Homes, will provide services to individuals over the age of 18 with histories of mental health, addiction and housing instability, states a release.

Services will include program management, supervised social work, nursing, addiction support, behavioural support, housing support casework, food security and 24/7 on call support where required.

The Ontario government is also investing an additional $202 million each year in homelessness prevention programs through the Homelessness Prevention Program and Indigenous Supportive Housing Program.

“Every day, Indwell continues to receive calls to create more supportive housing and every day we see the healing and wellness that comes from access to good, affordable housing and healthcare for our most vulnerable neighbours,” said Jeff Neven, CEO, Indwell, in a statement. “Today’s announcement is a celebration of a sound investment in improving mental health and ending homelessness in Mississauga.”
