The Adult Housing Reintegration Program (AHRP) helps individuals experiencing chronic homelessness and who have had interactions with the criminal justice system.
AHRP locates appropriate accommodation while providing wrap around services like case management, social development and support with mental health and addiction. AHRP sets clients up with permanent housing and gives clients the opportunity to move forward in positive ways.
This program is funded by the Calgary Homeless Foundation and is designed to break the cycle of poverty, homelessness and criminal behaviour. Housing provides a fundamental element that enables people to achieve other goals like becoming employed and maintaining good health. With the support of a community that recognizes the importance of housing first, we look forward to achieving our goal of helping people reintegrate into the community and rebuild their lives.
AHRP participates in the Coordinated Access and Assessment (CAA) system in Calgary. Potential clients in the community may be referred by a professional or may self-refer, and will need to contact the SORCe (www.scorce.ca) to have a SPDAT completed. Placement in AHRP is determined by CAA and may be dependent on program capacity at any given time.
This 2014 video focuses on the importance of housing in Calgary and involves an actual CJHS tenant and landlord.
The video highlights how CJHS helps clients transition from institutions and homelessness through
the Adult Housing Reintegration Program (AHRP) & Roofs for Youth Program.
Both AHRP and the Roofs for Youth rely on positive working relationships with Calgary landlords. Both programs are funded through the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
