Community Development

Type of Service

Support Within Housing - Mental Health

Program Description

Community Developers provide a multitude of functions within Ottawa Salus' supportive housing model. A primary function is to provide on-site support to individuals living within Salus-owned buildings (Althone; Lebreton; Gladstone; Rosemount) and three Ottawa Community Housing buildings (Maclaren; Regina; Lepage). Community Developers manage an on-site resource centre that tenants can access during drop-in hours. Parallel to the provision of individual support, Community Developers facilitate and develop a wide range of programs and initiatives that promote health and social inclusion.
