Lutherwood to lead new housing-focused teams
Lutherwood has been named lead agency for both the new Prioritized Access to Housing Support (PATHS) team and the new Portable Home-Based Support (HBS) team in Waterloo Region. The PATHS team will work to implement the Region’s new PATHS Framework by coordinating access to housing support for people experiencing homelessness who have a greater depth of need related to finding and keeping a home. The HBS Team will work to implement the Region’s new HBS Framework by providing support to people after they have been housed through the PATHS process. This housing support helps people to recover from homelessness, connect to other community-based services and reduce their depth of need so that they can stay housed with an improved quality of life. Both the PATHS Team and the HBS Team provide services region-wide.
