Housing Form

Presentation :

Impact’s housing program offers to people between 18 and 65 years old having mental health conditions the opportunity to benefit from an affordable apartment with follow-up.  We begin the program with a stay of two years in an apartment under supervision. After this period, we support and help people finding a long-term rent if the progression of the person and availability allow it. During this period, we will provide a weekly follow-up for the first months, then we will revaluate the frequency of the meetings.

Located in the area of Petite-Bourgogne, the building of 12-furnished studio is near services such as subway, pharmacy and grocery stores.

*Note that tenants can have 1 cat only.  Dogs are unfortunately forbidden.
