We believe in a trauma informed approach to care through a harm reduction lens.
We believe that every person has unique abilities, needs and choices. Our service responses are matched with wherever the person is in the change process. Rather than expecting an individual to “fit” into existing programming, we work with the person to develop personal goals and provide supports that “wrap around” them.
We are committed to caring for our city’s most vulnerable people.
Lighthouse staff are compassionate and non-judgmental. They are educated in and embrace a trauma informed care approach to caring for people (and themselves). Our training standards are high so that staff are equipped to provide the best support for people needing help and a roof over their head. The Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness considers our staff Canadian Pandemic Heroes.
