COSTI believes in breaking down barriers to sustainable housing. We accelerate access to housing by helping adults and young people search for homes; we work with landlords to understand how we can address their needs and prevent evictions and we provide workplace training for those who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless.

New relationships with landlords and community partners enhanced our services, allowing us to further expand our reach in an effort to secure housing more quickly and permanently for our clients.

We will continue to provide services in line with the Housing First Model of Service that focuses on assisting clients with housing access and follow-up activities to support housing stabilization. However, the impact to our clients due to the pandemic has resulted in many who are already living below the poverty line experiencing a further deterioration in their living conditions. Through donations and government supports, staff have responded to ensure that families are not left without basic necessities.
