Supportive Housing

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.

In order to be eligible for Supportive Housing in Penticton 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 Kenneth at 250-487-9339. 

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 Penticton community. Due to the current high demand, it is not recommended to relocate to Penticton with the expectation that affordable and supportive housing is available.

All Supportive Housing facilities have staffing 24 hours per day.

All Supportive Housing is funded by BC Housing.
