Rapid Exit is Hope Mission’s Housing First program. It aims to house and support chronically homeless individuals by helping them find and manage their own homes.
Rapid Exit works on a scattered site model; people are housed throughout the city and supported by follow-up workers who help connect them with further support and resources in their communities. In this program the client takes the lead in their own recovery and is given freedom to choose which goals and services to pursue. To date, the Rapid Exit program has housed 150 clients.
Immigration Hall is a transitional and long-term housing complex for men and women and is a gateway through which people enter new lives in their communities.
The building has 44 single resident suites that are available for rent at rates below market value. Rooms are available for Breakout graduates and Hope Mission employees. Many Breakout Recovery Community participants move into Immigration Hall during their work service.
The Hope Mission Centre
The Hope Mission Centre offers 52 beds in single and multiple occupant suites available for members of the Breakout Community.
A number of beds and suites are allotted to men in the later stages of the recovery program, while the single resident suites are used for transitional and long term supportive housing for Breakout graduates. These suites are available at affordable rates, lower than market value.
