About RainCity Housing :
RainCity Housing (RCH) provides innovative, specialized housing and support services for people living with mental illness, addictions and other challenges. The RainCity Housing family of programs includes emergency housing, transitional housing, women’s housing, long-term housing, outreach programs, food services and community living support. RCH reported to have provided 29,660 shelter stays and 149,845 meals. It reported to have assisted 180 previously homeless people in securing independent housing.
In September 2009, the Mental Health Commission of Canada sponsored the research development project At Home/Chez Soi. RCH’s role was to implement the Housing First Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team. The team is a recovery-oriented supportive housing approach that provides homeless people living with mental illness immediate access to rent supplements to live anywhere in the city. The rent supplements do not require participants to be in psychiatric or substance use treatment. Self-determination, choice, and harm reduction are at the core of all housing, support, and services provided by the ACT Team. The ACT team supports 100 clients at a client-staff ratio of 10:1.
In F2014, administrative costs were 9% of revenues and fundraising costs were 54% of donations. RCH’s funding reserves were negative due to $18.5m in mortgages and other debt.
