ALONE Housing with Support provides homes to older people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and need a level of support.
Our Support Coordinators work with each resident to coordinate the practical and personal supports they need to live independently. The level of support a resident receives varies as their needs change. Each ALONE home is age friendly, has its own front door and is maintained to a high standard.
Who is ALONE housing for?
