Housing, Skill Building, and Connections for Youth.
About Hope Homes
The Hope Homes program provides safe and stable housing options and individualized supports for youth, 16-24 years old, who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness.
Hope Homes operates from Housing First, Harm Reduction and Trauma Informed Practice models of care. To understand how homelessness is defined, please click here.
Hope Homes works with youth to:
- Explore housing options including independent living, shared accommodation, supportive roommates, and community housing
- Access community and professional resources
- Strengthen their life skills
- Work towards their educational and employment goals
- Increase their connections and natural supports to build support networks
- Connect to cultural resources
Hope Homes – Rapid Re-Housing Model
The Rapid Re-Housing is a short-term housing (3-6 months) program for youth aged 16-24 who are experiencing episodic or transitional homelessness, for example living in a shelter or couch surfing at friends.
In addition to short term housing, we help youth strengthen their connections with family, friends and community and provide them with case management support.
Hope Homes is funded by the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
