Houselink Community Homes seeks to improve the quality of life for those living with chronic or serious mental illness including people who are homeless or otherwise marginalized, through the provision of permanent, affordable, supportive housing and social programs.
Since 1977, Houselink Community Homes has provided safe housing to people with mental illnesses. As one of the pioneers in the concept of ‘supportive housing’, Houselink created a brand new option for people leaving psychiatric institutions. Houselink works from a “Recovery” framework which emphasizes optimal wellness for each member.
Today, Houselink is home to over 500 resident and non-resident members, including both single adults and families with children. Houselink owns 22 properties (houses and buildings) across the City of Toronto. We also manage over 125 units through partnerships with private market landlords. Houselink has housed over 2,000 people, served more than 40,000 meals and helped hundreds of individuals learn valuable skills to find meaningful work.
Houselink's programs bring members together to address the biggest threats: poverty and social isolation. Programming is available to all members to help improve heir lives including: Community Kitchens, Families Moving Forward, Social Recreation, Member Development and Education, Member Employment and Health & Wellness.
