A Different Street (ADS) Supportive Housing
A Different Street (ADS) Supportive Housing provides affordable accommodation and support to homeless or unstably housed young men, ages 16 to 21 upon entry to the program, who are justice-involved or at risk of being so.
ADS provides male identifying youth an opportunity to access safe accommodations and utilize on-site supports to assist with their life goals. Through these on-site supports, youth are assisted in actively addressing their specific personal, social, vocational, and health-related needs. As well, they are supported in developing the resources, including skills and attitudes, necessary for a successful transition to adulthood.
Individuals who live at ADS will have the responsibility of rent. All units at ADS are self-contained bachelor units.
