Fresh Start is a Housing First Program funded by the City of Winnipeg’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy that assists chronically or episodically homeless, particularly Indigenous youth. Our team works quickly to move homeless individuals into stable, permanent housing and supporting participants to maintain housing and self-sufficiency.
This last year our Fresh Start team was able to house twenty-four (24) people from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017 by facilitating access to housing; help set up apartments; provide landlord tenant services as well as assisting them to access services through Case Management.
