About this opportunity

SUPPORTING MEN, WOMEN & FAMILIES WHO ARE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS OR SOCIAL ISOLATION

Dom’s Place operates as a ‘one-stop-shop,’ an inclusive space where people can feel safe and connected. Some people pop in to get a meal, wash their clothes and chat with a social worker to address housing needs. Others come and play a game of pool, use the computers and connect with employment pathways. Case management, counselling, groups and mental health supports, as well as referrals to other services as needed. Other local services also operate from Dom’s Place including legal, housing, cultural, financial and medical services. People can drop in when they like, no appointment is needed.
