Since 1984, Homes First has been providing safe and affordable housing and emergency shelter, along with supportive services for individuals in all our properties. Doing this work for nearly 40 years has helped us concretely understand the issues adversely affecting the ability to house clients with complex mental health, physical health, and substance use issues. Homes First's resident support services are focused on maintaining housing, improving overall well-being, and educating on rights and responsibilities as tenants. Homes First applies a housing first ethos: our housing is not contingent on participation in any programs or services. Our focus is the safety and dignity of clients and making available a wide range of flexible services to benefit clients when they are ready.
