Low-Barrier Mens Shelter

Located in Summerside, this low-barrier shelter provides safe accommodations to Indigenous and non- Indigenous male-identifying adults aged 18 and older who are experiencing homelessness and/or in vulnerable living arrangements.

The shelter is staffed 24 hours, 7 days per week and will focus on using harm reduction and trauma informed care approaches, with person-centered case management providing specialized support services for those experiencing addictions, mental health, and other challenges including navigation of
housing supports, referrals, and needs assessment with a housing focus.

Guests will be required to work with their case manager and shelter staff to prepare for long-term housing solutions. Every day, shelter staff and housing outreach workers will work with guests to support their needs, including access to a breadth of social, cultural and community supports through the Native
Council’s programming.

The Native Council’s outreach staff emphasize meeting clients where they are at, providing wrap-around and client-centred services across PEI, responding to emergency situations, and providing access to health, justice, housing, and employment supports. All of these are crucial to helping community members in urgent need.

Housing is a basic human need and right. All persons deserve safe, secure, affordable, and well-maintained housing. The focus of shelter service delivery is to help guests find and maintain housing consistent with their service plans.
