Reaching Home

The Reaching Home program supports off-reserve Indigenous people who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of becoming homeless. Reaching Home offers front-line support, referrals, and housing placements, along with access to culturally relevant activities to promote self-sufficiency and involvement in the NCPEI community.

The Reaching Home program also works towards the implementation of a homelessness tracking tool that is specific to the off-reserve Indigenous community. This tool can be used in conjunction with the HIFIS (Homeless Individuals and Families Information System) to support future tracking.

Reaching Home establishes and implements shelter diversion and prevention strategies with the goal of reaching these individuals before they become homeless. This facilitates the reduction of eviction incidents for both Nanegkam Housing tenants and any other off-reserve Indigenous tenants across the
province of PEI.
