Fraser Street is our only alcohol and drug-free program and is designed to give tenants the kind of infrastructure and stability they want in their lives. This helps with working towards long-term health goals and seeking out independent living. It’s located between the Riley Park and Sunset neighbourhoods of Vancouver.
To help people with a mental illness who have gone through substance treatment find employment, re-engage with the community, and ultimately access long term housing after moving out.
WHO IS INVOLVED
Tenants at Fraser Street have been referred by Vancouver Coastal Health and are pursuing a substance-free life. They have a history of substance use and are making intentional changes in their lives. Many have been homeless, and all are living with mental health challenges.
WHAT IT IS
Each tenant lives in one of 30 studio suites, complete with kitchen and bathroom and has access to 24/7 support staff that provides services including:
- social and recreational opportunities
- learning opportunities
- links to ongoing recovery meetings
- employment networking
