Housing Services

Supported Recovery Housing
This housing program is designed to serve homeless individuals who identify the desire to actively work on their recovery from addiction. It operates using a shared living model in four residences owned by Safe Harbour Society. We have facilitators living in the houses and they are a key to the success of the program for both our tenants and neighbourhoods we are in. Case Managers work directly on the care of the tenants and case plans are developed and client centered. Tenants are supported in their sobriety and in maintaining their housing.

Our houses are in various neighbourhoods in the City.

Harbour House
Designed to provide housing and support for eight individuals who are considered to be the most vulnerable in our community and who have the most difficulty accessing and sustaining housing. Harbour House operates with 24-hour staffing. Individuals with the greatest need are “screened in” rather than “screened out.” Staff members focus on developing relationships built on trust and respect. As always, our emphasis is on improving health and the harm reduction strategies we present provide a realistic health approach.

Red Deer Housing Team
The RDHT is an interagency team that includes Safe Harbour, Canadian Mental Health, Central Alberta Women’s Outreach and the Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter. The activities of the team include: developing and fostering partnerships with landlords and community resources, assessing individual needs, providing case management services, supporting individuals as they connect to doctors, dentists, mental health, or addiction services, assist with landlord negotiations, arrange rent payment options and provide follow up support for up to 6 months to ensure people maintain their housing. This program serves the people in our community that are the most vulnerable and have the greatest acuity of needs.
