Shelter Services

Our Landlord Coordinator is here to help clients with the day to day living in an apartment building.  Should clients’ apartments require any repairs they contact the landlord. The Landlord is responsible for signing leases, doing a move in and move out inspection and arranging timely payment of rent.

 A typical stay in our second-stage shelter program is six months.  During this time clients make the decision of whether to move into our supportive Progressive Housing program or find appropriate housing in the community.  Our Housing Locator will is able to provide clients with choices on what is best for them and their family based on their monthly finances. Learn more here.

There are many different programs available to our clients here at the Brenda Strafford Society.  On a weekly basis residents are provided milk, bread and eggs on a first come, first serve basis.  The Hillhurst-Sunnyside Community Centre, provides fresh fruit and vegetables free of charge on a weekly basis on Monday evenings from 4pm – 6pm.

Please bring your own bag, and remember it is a first come, first serve program.
