The Centralized Access to Supported Housing (CASH) program is a cross-organizational hub for collecting applications and referrals to mental health and addictions supported housing in the Greater Victoria area.
Supported housing integrates tenancy with on-site support services and is intended for people:
- Who are managing multiple barriers including mental health and/or addiction issues;
- Who, due to these issues, are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness;
- Whose support needs cannot be managed with community supports.
CASH strives to streamline access to supported housing with a fair and equitable process for all people accessing supported housing in the Greater Victoria area.
CASH is unfortunately not a good fit for individuals whose primary needs are:
- Affordable housing
- Assisted Living
- Tertiary care
- Emergency housing
- Abstinence based housing
- Transitional housing for clients released from prison
- Housing for minors or families (clients with children)
- Seniors housing
