Rent Supplement is a provincially funded service that provides a rent subsidy to individuals who require financial assistance to obtain or maintain suitable housing. The purpose of the service is to assist individuals in accessing decent, safe, affordable and secure housing. The service operates in partnership with landlords who operate in the Sudbury/Manitoulin district in CMHA approved units.
Transitional Community Support is a service that provides short-term support to individuals who are receiving housing services from CMHA and require assistance in sustaining and maintaining their housing. Individuals can receive assistance from a Transitional Community Support Worker for 3 to 4 months to enhance daily living skills and maintain their wellness to reduce crisis, hospitalizations and risk of homelessness. Short term support activities will involve one-on-one planning (personal care plans) and may include crisis prevention, hospital diversion, development of daily living skills, advocacy with landlords, peer support and an opportunity to access community resources and supports.
