30 units located on Quilchena Ave.
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
