There are many ways that we can help people who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of experiencing homelessness.

We focus not only on getting a roof over your head in the short term, but also in helping you connect with ongoing services and support to find and maintain a long-term, permanent place to live.

For immediate Housing support please call 1 (888) 621-0034.

Cornerstone House

Cornerstone House offers two separate programs, a 10-bed shelter and a Transitional Housing program. 

The Shelter Program provides temporary housing for people who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness. We offer a safe and supportive co-ed environment for people between 18 and 29 years of age.

The Transitional Housing Program provides support to people exiting the shelter system or people at risk of homelessness. Transitional Housing is a 12-bed co-ed, all-inclusive semi-independent program for people between 18 and 29 years of age who are ready to learn the skills they need to live independently.

Supportive Housing - City of Brantford

Supportive housing helps people who are at risk of homelessness, promoting self-sufficiency while preventing housing loss. People are connected to landlords and are set up in a private self-contained apartment where they are the lease holders of their unit under the residential tenancy act. The program is offered for one year with an opportunity for extension, supporting independent sustainability of the unit.
