Lookout outreach workers engage people in their community, recognizing that every individual requires their own strategy. Working with each individual to develop a case management plan, Outreach teams connect guests to required external supports including housing, finance, health, addiction, and other services. Many Lookout guests are able to maintain independent living because of the support received from our outreach teams.
The lack of affordable housing throughout the region is challenging our outreach teams, especially with the limited supply of affordable, supportive, permanent non-market rental housing. Despite the high demand for housing, our goal is to house people appropriately.
To provide these options to our guests, Lookout is working closely with municipalities, provincial and federal governments and local foundations to identify development opportunities of both new and existing housing developments.
