Support Through Housing Team (STHT) started operations in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in 2002 as a committee of partner non-profit organizations that provide “wrap-around” support to individuals and families experiencing or at risk of homelessness. STHT became a registered charity in 2009 and since then has grown to offer 4 main services:
- Wrap-around Support: We assist clients in accessing community supports that help reduce barriers to housing. Individuals and families improve their lives through counselling, addiction treatment, legal and/or financial assistance, shelter options, basic necessities, education and/or employment opportunities.
- Transitional Supportive Living: STHT partners with Wood Buffalo Housing and Development Corporation to house clients in a supportive apartment building, until they are ready to live independently and find stable housing in the community.
- Outreach Support: No matter where you’re living, our outreach team works with clients who are determined to accomplish their personal goals towards health and self-sufficiency.
- Life Skills Coaching: Every STHT client has access to one-on-one coaching to develop life skills including: household cleaning and budgeting, personal hygiene, parenting help, meal preparation, time management, volunteerism and community engagement, problem solving and decision making.
