Summary

Sitting at the crossroads of housing and homelessness, supportive housing is seen as a long-term solution for people experiencing mental health issues, substance abuse and chronic homelessness. Recognizing there is an urgent need, several organizations collaborated on the Growth Plan, which will help the sector identify shared strategies to meet supportive housing needs in Toronto. To build on the growth plan, Mainstay Housing submitted a grant application to support the Creation of a Resource Centre to Increase Development Capacity in Toronto’s Supportive Housing Sector. Funded by the Centre to the tune of $300,000, the Resource Centre, a permanent organization offering long-term support, will help the sector identify shared strategies, provide the tools and guidance to leverage untapped development potential, explore strategic asset pooling, and build development capacity.
