TRY Supportive Housing Program
The TRY program provides low cost housing with support for women who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. TRY has 43 private rooms with shared common washrooms and kitchen facilities. Four of the rooms have ensuite bathrooms. Rooms come furnished with a closet, bed frame, chair, and small fridge. Clients provide their own mattress, bed sheets, towels, cooking utensils, and groceries.
TRY has two full-time case managers (Monday-Friday) and a part-time housing support worker on the weekends. After-hours assistance is provided by the Housing Support Office and front desk staff. Clients will have access to crisis counseling, community resource information and support in order to achieve their long term goals to move on to permanent housing.
This program is open to single women, 18+ years of age, who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. TRY welcomes women living with mental health and addictions issues who are connected to relevant supports. Those with addictions must have been in recovery for at least three months.
