Description

Nestled on Tranquille Rd, Spero House offers 58 units of supportive housing managed by the ASK Wellness Society. This comprehensive program not only provides housing but also includes meals for participants and grants access to a dedicated full-time nurse. With expertise in medication management, wound care, and health navigation, the nurse plays a pivotal role in ensuring residents receive the necessary care to support their well-being.

Spero House embodies the mission of the ASK Wellness Society by providing vulnerable members of our community with safe and affordable housing solutions. By offering stability and support, we contribute to reducing the demand for community services previously tasked with addressing homelessness-related issues.

Our commitment to resident care is reflected in our round-the-clock staffing, providing personalized support focused on problem-solving, safety, harm reduction, and essential life skills. Residents are encouraged to engage in wellness planning tailored to their individual needs, with a strong emphasis on health, welfare, and safety.

Eligibility for our Supportive Housing programs in Kamloops requires participation in the Vulnerability Assessment Tool (VAT) to determine the most suitable housing option. For inquiries or to schedule a VAT assessment, please contact our main office at 250-376-7558 EXT 0.

Spero House operates with the generous support of BC Housing, enabling us to continue our vital mission of providing essential housing and support services to those in need within our community.
