Homes

Mental illness often strikes young people before they finish their education, resulting in lifelong dependence and poverty, which in turn leads to inadequate housing or homelessness, exacerbating the illness and inhibiting treatment.

To address this challenge, Affirmative Ventures has established the Affirmative Homes program, creating opportunities for mental health consumers where isolation and seclusion is eradicated and recovery can ensue. Current living arrangements can be found below. View Our Brochure

An innovative Tenant Savings Plan, supported by the tenants and Affirmative Ventures in partnership with the Nova Scotia Department of Community Services, helps tenants build equity for future endeavors.

Affirmative House

Affirmative House was built in 2007 to provide a stable, affordable home from which participants recovering from mental illness can engage as productive members of our communities.

The house is a co-operative based housing model and provides 10 tenants with the opportunity to build equity and gain independence while working or acquiring an education.

An innovative Tenant Savings Plan, supported by the tenants and Affirmative Ventures in partnership with the Nova Scotia Department of Community Services, helps tenants earn equity for buying a home or returning to school when they move on.
