Homelessness Prevention Program

CWAV Society assists women with housing support and rental subsidies through the Homelessness Prevention Program (HPP). A dedicated staff member helps women identify their housing needs and prepare a budget for long-term sustainable housing. With her support, women get access to income assistance, child benefits and other income to which she is entitled. HPP has assisted women cover or develop a payment plan for outstanding debts that are preventing her from getting housing and with damage deposits. Often, women qualify for small rental subsidies for a number of months while they solidify their independence. Most important in women successfully remaining housed is the individual support they get from our homelessness prevention worker. 

Women access this program through internal referrals. Residents from Somenos House are given priority when a rental subsidy becomes available. Women who are accessing other CWAV Society programs can occasionally be supported.

This program is funded by BC Housing Corporation.
