Shelter & Housing

In an effort to better support those experiencing unsafe housing, sporadic homelessness, hoarding, or domestic abuse, Samaritan House Ministries looks for ways to support various stages of transition from homelessness to safe and secure housing. 

Mary's House

Mary’s House is a second-stage transitional housing program for women and their children who are fleeing domestic violence. There are four suites available in the secure location, where clients are able to stay for a maximum of one year. Counselling is given as part of the program, with one women’s counselor and one children’s counselor. Women and children can also access the counselling services if they do not reside in the program.

Safe & Warm Shelter

The Safe & Warm Shelter is a 13-bed emergency shelter designated for adults (18+) who experience occasional homelessness. The shelter is fully staffed with trained support workers and security guards who ensure safety and assistance for clients. The Shelter is open from November to April however in 2020 we were able to keep the shelter open all year long due to extra funding and support. The shelter is currently open nightly from 7:00 pm to 8:00 am (winter hours 2020/21).

 

Clearing the Path Program

Do you:

Collect too many things?

Have trouble getting rid of things?

Have a hard time organizing?

Risk losing your home due to hoarding?

 

The Samaritan House Ministries Clearing the Path Program works to effectively address and relieve problematic hoarding and domestic squalor. With the problem of hoarding comes a very real risk of eviction from housing, increased risk of dangerous falls, and health problems due to excessive clutter. Our services help clients manage their clutter and get the emotional support they need to live safely. If you or someone you know is struggling with the dangers of hoarding or domestic squalor, please contact the Clearing the Path Coordinator for access to:

  • Assessments for in-home safety and risk

  • Strategies and support for decluttering, sorting, and organizing

  • Referrals to appropriate services

  • Assistance navigating social and health systems

  • Interim case management

  • Mental health consultation and emotional support

  • Support groups with others who struggle with hoarding and squalor

Buried in Treasures Workshop Series  

The Buried in Treasures Workshop offers a scientifically based, effective program for helping those with hoarding disorder dig their way out of the clutter and chaos of their homes. Written by scientists and practitioners who are leaders in studying and treating hoarding disorder, this workshop outlines a program of skill-building, learning to think about possessions in a different way, and gradual challenges to help people manage their clutter and their lives.
