Programs - Robson Houses Supportive Housing Program

Robson Houses Supportive Housing Program

The Robson Houses are based on a peer support model within the houses, 24/7 access to professional support through our main facility and dedicated support from a Community Transition Worker. Resident supports are trained in addiction counselling and accessing community resources; residents also receive support from a House Manager who cares for the resident’s needs afterhours and manages and maintains the properties.

This supportive housing model is designed to help male graduates of residential addiction treatment programs transition safely from treatment into the community. Residents can stay in these houses anywhere from 6 months to two years, working on their aftercare plans in a safe, sober and supported environment.

Recovery Acres will help residents with things like job training, education, finding steady employment, securing appropriate ongoing mental health support as needed and eventually help the residents transition into permanent living situations according to their needs.

Robson House residents have weekly house meetings to discuss any issues and check in with each other. There are shared chores and responsibilities within the house and each resident is responsible for maintaining their own aftercare plan.
