We provide shelter and support to up to 42 men who find themselves with nowhere else to go. With case management support we work to help these men find safe, stable housing.
Correctional Residential Facility
We provide a halfway house environment to 8 federal parole clients who are finishing their sentences and re-establishing themselves.
These men stay for periods of up to two years. They have conditions on their stay and will return to prison should they break those conditions. We also provide weekly life skills classes for men and parenting classes for women at the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre on Hwy. 61. We treat all people with dignity and respect and believe that everyone deserves a second chance.
Homes for Special Care
When the decision was made a number of years ago to close most of the psychiatric hospitals, there was a hole left that many people have fallen through. Men with mental and/or developmental challenges, and addictions struggle to get through every day. They need support to carry out the simplest of tasks. We provide long term housing and daily support to 16 men. They are provided with all of the necessities of life, and a safe, secure environment.
The building is owned and operated by the the District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board (TBDSSAB), with case management provided by The Salvation Army. One case worker and two program support workers provide the support needed by these residents. Both men and women live independently in self-contained apartments, with recreational and life-skills programming provided by the case workers. Located at 219 Pearl Street, this 34-unit apartment building provides housing for people living with mental and or developmental challenges - some also suffer with addictions.
