Programs & Services For People In The Community
Abbotsford experiences homelessness in much the same way as any other major community and city. Men who are homeless or at risk of homelessness will soon be able to take advantage of a low barrier supportive housing project on Gladys Road just outside of downtown Abbotsford.
The Homeless Prevention Program is an initiative aimed at providing individuals in identified at-risk groups facing homelessness with portable rent supplements and support services to help them access rental housing in the private (non-subsidized) housing market. The rent supplements and support services help recipients access rental housing in the private (non-subsidized) housing market and community-based services.
