Supported Independent Living Program

Bruce House block-leases subsidized apartments (of various sizes) in the Ottawa area from not-for-profit housing providers, thus reserving an inventory of housing for our residents. We sublet the units to our residents and provide specific types of support in activities of daily living and counseling as well as access to other agencies and services in the community. Our current capacity allows us to serve 50-60 people which includes adults, youth and children. Our focus is on self-determination, working with our residents to decide for themselves what they want and to assist them in seeking it out. We also help others in accessing alternative secure, affordable and appropriate housing when our program capacity cannot accommodate additional clients.
