PAQ has 16 transition apartment studios: 9 for men and 6 for women, and an accessible apartment for a person with mobility challenges. Tenants are provided with access to a full-time psychosocial worker.
Governed by a set of protocols that promote safety and harmony between residents and those around them, transition rooms offer lease contracts from three months to three years. In transition, an intervention style that is culturally adapted to First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples is used. Our intervention worker works closely with the residents to prevent a return to homelessness and supports members towards developing better stability in their lives on a short-term, midterm, and long-term basis.
