The Living on the Land Housing Sustainability Worker is responsible for creating spaces for ceremony, providing connection to grief recovery workshops and land-based learning opportunities.

The focus of this program is to help heal the 12 Dimensions of Indigenous Homelessness, and is focused on healing through incorporating ceremony that is strength based, culturally responsive, trauma informed and responsive to the individualized needs of vulnerable and our marginalized peoples.

Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy was launched in April 2019 and supports the goals of the National Housing Strategy, in particular, to support the needs of the most vulnerable Canadians; to improve access to safe, stable and affordable housing; and to reduce chronic homelessness by 50 percent by 2027-28.

Reaching Home is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness across Canada. It provides funding and support to urban, Indigenous, territorial and rural and remote communities to help them address their local homelessness needs. The main objective of Reaching Home is to streamline access to housing and supports for people who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, by coordinating local services to achieve community-wide outcomes using real-time data.
