The Addictions Supportive Housing Program (ASH) blends the dedicated work of two outstanding AIDS service organizations; LOFT Community Services- The McEwan House Community Support Program, and Fife House. ASH provides 32 single-dwelling units of subsidized, independent housing in partnership with private market landlords around Toronto, with funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, in conjunction with the Local Health Integration Network.
The Program focuses on assisting community members living with HIV/AIDS who have a history of homelessness, severe addictions and who have a record of hospitalization and/or frequent use of emergency health services. Furthermore, The Addiction Supportive Housing Program will seek to decrease the health care inequalities experienced by this population and to increase the quality of life and social determinants of health for this community. Members of the program are supported in this process through provisional participation in individualized support services by staff of the LOFT Community Support Program.
