WHERE IS THIS PAGE GOING

Our programs are designed to create an environment where all children connected to the foster care system have equal opportunities akin to those of parented youth. Similar to a family, we help participants secure safe housing, coach them in essential life skills, and open the doors to a brighter future.

HOUSING

Aunt Leah’s Place provides housing and homelessness prevention for youth from care and families at-risk of losing child custody. Aunt Leah’s uses a variety of strategies to help keep participants housed: rental supplements, landlord relations, tenancy education, shared/supportive housing, 2nd stage housing, mixed-income apartments, scattered site housing, damage deposits, suite set-ups, rehousing, and regular site visits.
Our programs target the entry and exit points of the foster care system, with a goal of providing supports, resources and opportunities similar to those provided by average Canadian families. As such, over the past five years – 
and in response to unaffordable rental housing markets – 
Aunt Leah’s has supported an increasingly greater proportion of its participants with housing and subsidies.
