Supportive Housing - City of Brantford
The Supportive Housing Program assists clients to secure safe, affordable housing. Clients are supported by a Counsellor and rent supplements are available to help bridge the difference between the client’s ability to pay and the market rent to a maximum amount.
The Supportive Housing Counsellor builds on clients’ strengths and addresses individual needs in order to develop a collaborative client service plan to facilitate/sustain successful independent living
