The principle of “Housing First” is that every person has the RIGHT to a safe and secure home.
Wabano’s Housing First Initiative helps First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples who are experiencing absolute or episodic homelessness.
The goal of Wabano’s Housing Initiative is to:
- Assist First Nations, Métis and Inuit in finding affordable, safe and permanent housing.
- Identify individual strengths and challenges and goal setting.
- Provide culturally specific Aboriginal resources and education.
