My Home Place Supportive Housing Program

Addressing homelessness in Dawson Creek

Adults (19 and above) who are homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness.

Program Summary

My Home Place is a partnership between the City of Dawson Creek and BC Housing, and is designed to address homelessness in Dawson Creek. South Peace Community Resources Society is operating the facility through an agreement with BC Housing.

Provincially-funded supportive housing is for people experiencing homelessness. Supportive housing provides a home with access to on-site supports to ensure people can achieve and maintain housing stability. Residents have access to their own self-contained studio apartment or, in some cases, a secure unit with shared bathroom and amenity spaces. All residents sign either a program or tenancy agreement and participate in programming based on an individualized case plan. All residents in supportive housing have made a choice to live there and are able to access the services provided by non-profit housing operators, such as life-skills training, and connections to primary health care, mental health and/or substance use services.
