Although securing safe and affordable housing is ultimately the goal for many of our folks who are experiencing homelessness, there is a shortage of accessible supportive housing and affordable rental market housing. There may be a small number of individuals who are ready and assisted into housing, but considering the needs of the individuals, their own identified goals, and the current housing market, housing may not be the goal or outcome of our program. Wherever possible, provision of safe shelter will be provided within our shelter systems. We are able to provide a BC Housing VAT assessment and assist with connection to housing resources, but we are not housing workers specifically.
Absolutely! Regardless of how long your ID has been missing or where we have to go to get it, this is something that we are able to help with.
We definitely can help! We can assist you in accessing RAAC services at the Chilliwack General Hospital by making your appointment together and accompanying you to your OAT appointment. If you are expressing readiness for residential treatment, we can introduce you to the CAPS or Indigenous Wellness substance use counselling team here at PCRS and get you started with one-to-one counselling or group work. It is our job to help create the bridge between you and the services you are seeking in Chilliwack.
