Tenants in our supportive housing buildings work in collaboration with our trained and experienced Community Support Workers to achieve goals.  Recovery-based principles of hope, empowerment, purposeful life, being informed and having supportive relationships enhance a tenant’s independent Iiving  experience. Transitioning from homelessness to stable, affordable housing is the goal.  This is achieved through the following services:  assessment; goal planning; skills teaching; crisis prevention and intervention; advocacy and supportive housing.

AIS encourages tenants to be involved in their larger community.  Our staff’s expertise in the mental health  system, homelessness, harm-reduction, and substance mis-use challenges helps tenants to ensure long term tenure in their housing. 

AIS has a diverse staff team.  They can communicate in the following languages:  English, American Sign Language, Polish, Spanish, Norwegian, Cantonese, Mandarin and Tamil.

AIS has a Referral Agreement with the following Community Partners:
