Project Northern Doorway (PND) is a strategy to target Homelessness in Thompson. It’s a partnership program which has a comprehensive list of community stakeholders. It’s based on the Housing First Model, which is an evidence based and recovery oriented approach. It’s immediate housing without the stipulation of sobriety or being in a treatment program. Our Homeless Outreach Mentors are responsible for supporting, empowering and advocating for the participants of Project Northern Doorway.
Participants are chosen based on their chronic use of emergency services, hospitalizations and their use of the Thompson Homeless Shelter. It’s comprised of participants living in their own apartments and participants living in our Housing with Supports Facility called 95 Cree Road. 95 Cree Road has built in programming, support and 24 hour staff.
Participants of Project Northern Doorway are supported by three Homeless Outreach Mentors. The Homeless Outreach Mentors provide intensive case management, one on one supports, advocacy and empowerment to all Project Northern Doorway participants.
