Housing Support

Housing Support

This program is operating at reduced capacity for June 2024. We are not currently accepting new referrals. Questions can be directed via email at housing@youthproject.ns.ca and will be returned within 7 business days.

The YP Housing Support connects 2SLGBTQIA+ community members in the HRM to housing and other supports. All aspects of the program are voluntary and no fee for service, and you don’t have to be out to access support.

We provide information and resources to 2SLGBTQIA+ youth 16-30 to live in safer, affordable, and affirming homes. Self referral is encouraged.
Please note, this program is staffed by one person. As a result, we will prioritize those who are currently unhoused or at immediate risk of losing housing. Our services can be accessed by phone, text, video call, as well as by email at housing@youthproject.ns.ca.

2SLGBTQIA+ Housing Support Drop-in with The Youth Project

There are no upcoming drop in housing support events. Welcome Housing provides drop in support on Thursday mornings at Alderney Library. Click HERE for more details. Check back in July 2024 for updates.

The Youth Project Housing Support Program will be on hand at the Alderney Public Library (60 Alderney Road, Dartmouth) to meet with 2SLGBTQIA+ folks ages 16 – 30 who need support finding housing or navigating housing insecurity.

The Youth Project HSP is able to offer many services including: eviction prevention, emergency shelter navigation, subsidy application support, ID assistance, transition support, and community health support navigation. Priority for this program is for those who are currently unhoused/homeless or at immediate risk of losing housing.

You do not need to be out to access this support and all interactions with The Youth Project are confidential.
