Phoenix Post Treatment Transitional Housing

Ready to take the next step? Consider transitional housing…

A safe, structured, affordable, post-treatment transition housing program — for both men and women — is available at the Phoenix Centre, Quibble Creek Centre and Rising Sun Villas.

A supportive, empowering community.

Have you completed a structured recovery program for at least three months? Are you motivated to implement your own education and employment plans? Are you homeless or at risk of becoming so?

This unique housing program sits within a hub of integrated employment and education assistance, leisure, recreation and volunteer opportunities. The 111 furnished studio-style units are nested in a supportive learning community designed to empower residents to reach their recovery goals.

Transitional housing stays of up to two years are offered.
