Supportive Housing

The Mission Statement of Supportive Housing is: to provide flexible strengths-based and barrier free supportive housing for persons with a serious mental illness or dual diagnosis that is based on respect, dignity, hope and collaboration. The goals of supportive housing include:

Supports are flexible, based on client need and stability and may be dependent on the different housing programs available. They may include: Case Management, Housing Supports, Peer Supports or Housing Retention visits by CMHA-HKPR staff or by Community Partners who provide primary support in the unit. Individual programs may have varying lengths of tenancy or different application or eligibility requirements.

Because this is a Supportive Housing program, people wishing to apply must qualify and receive support services before their housing application will be brought forward (pending eligibility).

For those already receiving support services, application for CMHA Supportive Housing is through the primary support provider. For those wishing to receive service, application is by appointment through the Intake Worker who may be contacted at

(705) 748-6711 (Peterborough)
(905) 377-9891 (Northumberland)
(705) 328-2704 (Kawartha Lakes)
(705) 876-1292 (Fourcast Addiction Supportive Housing)
(705) 328-2798 ex. 28 (Harrison House)

Unless otherwise indicated, tenants in the Supportive Housing program are selected by a Tenant Selection Committee. The Tenant Selection Committee uses a fair and concise 6 level priority based selection system that takes into account situational need as well as support requirements. Selection is therefore based on need and not necessarily by chronological order of application.
