Non-Profit Housing Corporation
Alpha Court is both a Community Mental Health/Addictions and Non-Profit Housing provider. The organization has 2 major areas of focus: mental health/addictions and subsidized housing. There is some overlap between the two divisions as 70% of our subsidized housing units are dedicated to persons with a mental illness/addictions who require supported living arrangements. Alpha Court owns two apartment buildings with a total of 59 apartment units. All the units are rent-geared-to-income (RGI) and the housing is permanent in nature for as long as the individual chooses to reside in his/her unit. The remaining 30% of our housing is occupied by families, couples, single parents or persons with a physical disability.
The mental health/addictions division contains three separate programs – Community Mental Health and Addiction Services, Ooshke Bemahdesewin Program, and Rapid Response Outreach Services. These are intensive community support services for adults with a serious mental illness and/or addiction.
Ooshke Bemahdesewin's Program provides services exclusively for Aboriginal adults. The Rapid Response Outreach Program (R.R.O.S.) is mandated to provide services in two specific areas utilizing a brokerage case management approach. The two areas include:
♦ Adult Mental Health and Addictions
♦ Corrections - Probation and Parole/Thunder Bay Corrections Centre.
