Complex care housing in Fraser Health is part of the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions’ initiative to support people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Health care, social services and non-profit housing providers will deliver wrap-around care for adults 19 and older living with overlapping mental health and/or substance use challenges and other health needs.

Complex care housing provides a cross-section of health services, integrated into one team. The team meets people where they are and works with people to support them in ways they feel would serve them best.

Services are delivered seven days-a-week. The programming is culturally responsive, utilizes a harm reduction approach and is inclusive of personal choices, natural supports and diverse cultures and lifestyles.

  • Medication management support
  • Psychosocial rehabilitation supports
  • Indigenous-specific services
  • Recreational and leisure activities
  • Life skills support and skill development
  • Harm reduction approach
