The name says it all; we operate a program to provide housing for families while at the same time offering supportive services in order that families can plan and then implement a course of action to move from homelessness to permanent housing.
When a family moves into one of our shelters they sign an agreement with BCHG to design and then implement a plan that moves them forward towards permanent housing. The Supportive Housing Program staff and client families work together as a team to set and accomplish the goals each family needs to meet in order to live independently.This plan may include additional schooling or job trainings. It may be a plan which is focused on saving money while employed. But whatever it is, the client family drives the planning,

BCHG staff is there to support the family as needed.
While a family lives at SHP site they also receive support from the community. Community support is essential for client success. Community members may volunteer or donate money or services which assist client families to move forward to independent housing.
