Affordable Housing with Supports
The Greater Moncton area, like many growing cities, does not have an adequate supply of affordable housing. Lack of adequate shelter can be devastating, and can lead to further problems in our community.
While our local shelters offer a vital service for people in crisis, they fall short of addressing the long-term needs of the homeless such as below poverty line wages, poor credit, history of eviction, lack of move-in funds, and even mental health or addictions problems. The homeless are living in shelters, “couch surfing”, substandard and unsafe housing, or leaving hospitals and correctional facilities without a place to live.
A POSITIVE PLACE FOR NEW BEGINNINGS
The John Howard Society of Southeastern New Brunswick Inc. provides transitional housing with support services for men who have been struggling with stable housing. Most importantly, they provide housing to men who have a genuine desire to experience positive change in their lives.
Flanders Court Residences is a place for these men to begin the work that is necessary to achieve their personal goals towards independent living. After a careful intake process, to ensure that we have the right type of housing to meet a persons needs, the John Howard Society offers subsidized rents along with supports such as GED, Job Search, case management, and connection to other resources in the community that they might need to achieve their life goals – to create a new beginning.
Located at 15 Flanders Court, the facility features:
- JHS Corporate offices (4,000 sq feet of office space)
- Secure access to 10 one-bedroom apartments
- Community kitchen and meeting rooms
- Programs and support services
- Environmentally sustainable construction
- Healthy work and living environment
