Support within Housing

Our Case Managers can help individuals and their families to access affordable and stable housing, live in the community and achieve their personal recovery goals. This service works on a 'head lease' model that enables clients and their families to live in public market units. Hong Fook Mental Health Association rents the apartment units or house units in the private market for our clients and their families AND provides them with case management services, through individualized supports such as problem solving, risk management, coping with emotions, managing mental health issues, linking to community resources, developing positive relationships and life skills training.
