Housing First Treatment Model

My Place In Recovery (MPIR) has an intake process that is done with each individual client that allows us to determine where every clients program needs can be best met.

"Housing First" is a recovery-oriented approach to ending homelessness that centers on quickly moving people experiencing homelessness into Independent and Permanent housing. MPIR then provides additional structure and assistance, as needed, along with community-based aid so that people can continue to keep their housing and Not return to homelessness.

The basic underlying principle of Housing First is that people are better able to move forward with their lives if they are first housed. It is a rights based, client centered approach that emphasizes client choice in terms of housing and supports. This is as true for people experiencing homelessness and those with mental health and addictions issues as it is for anyone. Housing is provided first and then supports are provided including physical and mental health, education, employment, substance abuse and community connections.

My Place In Recovery (MPIR) has an intake process that is done with each individual client that allows us to determine where every clients program needs can be best met.

Our clients do not have to demonstrate that they are ready for housing.

Getting someone off the streets into our program is not conditional on sobriety or abstinence.

MPIR's program participation is voluntary unless court ordered.

Every client is closely evaluated upon the intake process to determine where they might fit within our different level programs which are inclusive of "Housing First."

Choice may be constrained by what a client can afford and the availability we have within the particular treatment programs that we operate.

treatment programs include:
MPIR's "Housing First" practice is not simply focused on meeting client needs, but also on supporting recovery.

Our Supportive Services focuses on individual well being ensuring that clients have a wide range of support services that enable them to nurture and maintain social, recreational, educational, occupational, and vocational activities.

For those with addiction challenges, our Supportive Servives Programs create access to harm reduction environments. Harm reduction aims to reduce the risks and harmful effects associated with substance use and addictive behaviors for the individual, the community and society as a whole without requiring assistance. However, as part of our services we offer a wide spectrum of choices in the "Housing First" model by providing harmful reductions people may desire, such as "abstinence only" housing.

Our "Client-Driven" approach recognizes that the individuals are unique and so are there needs. Once housed, some people will need minimum supports while other people will need long term maximum support, this could range from case management to assertive community Services.

Individuals will be provided with a range of support services that are voluntary, individualized, culturally-appropriate and portable (e.g.,in mental health, substance use, physical health, employment, education), we address housing stability, health and mental health needs and life skills.

MPIR's philosophy is that people have access to the supports they need, if they choose. Access to housing is not conditional upon accepting a particular kind of service.

The "Housing First" model prioritizes getting people off the streets and into housing with wrap-around support services to follow.

MPIR's wrap-around clinical support services offer a range of supports designed to enhance the health, mental health and social care of the client.

Our goals are to enhance well-being, mitigate the effects of mental health and addictions challenges, improve quality of life, integrate individuals into the community to achieve self-sufficiency.

We also encourage engagement in meaningful activities, along with assisting in finding employment and income supports.
