Merritt Homes

Support those in need by Donating Today
Located within the main Merritt office at 2196 Quilchena Ave, the Housing Outreach Team is here to work with community members who need support to maintain or find safe and secure housing. Through funding provided by BC Housing and local fundraising efforts, our Housing Outreach Workers can provide damage deposit assistance, funding for emergency repairs, funding for security deposits, and rent subsidies. This financial support is not intended to be ongoing, but rather for situations that leave a family or individual in a position that potentially could make them homeless, lose access to food, and/or negatively impact their health. We also work clients to develop life skills such as budgeting, basic cleanliness, and communication skills to ensure they have the best chance to succeed in maintaining their housing.
For those who are not able to access the residential tenancy market due to mental health, addiction, or other factors, the Housing Outreach Team serves as a first point of contact for those who need Supportive or Transitional Housing (see more on these forms of housing below).

The Supportive housing facilities operated by the ASK Wellness Society provide vulnerable members of our community experiencing mental health and substance use issues with safe and affordable housing. These programs also benefit the community itself by decreasing the need for by-law to address issues involving these individuals when they do not have safe and affordable housing.

All Supportive housing programs provide client-focused support on problem solving, safety, documentation such as identification, harm reduction, health navigation, and overall life skills. Clients who choose to can participate in wellness planning with a focus on their health, welfare, and safety. Each tenant is honored as an individual and wellness plans are designed to meet them where they are at.

In order to be eligible for Supportive Housing in Merritt you are required to take part in the Vulnerability Assessment Tool (VAT) to determine which housing option is the best fit. To have one completed or for more information you can call our main office at 250-315-0098.

The supportive housing units currently do not have any vacancies and there is a tremendous amount of demand amongst individuals who are long term residents of the Merritt community. Due to the current high demand, it is not recommended to relocate to Merritt with the expectation that affordable and supportive housing is available.

This program is funded by BC Housing.
