Supporting People to Live More Independently

A stable home is an anchor. When faced with multiple barriers to maintaining stable housing, such as chronic health challenges, addictions, or low income, support managing one’s daily affairs is key to preventing crisis or homelessness.

The Bloom Group provides supportive housing – a stable home with access to a range of support services – for 66 residents in the Downtown Eastside. We assist residents in managing day-to-day tasks and activities so they are able to succeed in maintaining stable housing. Our supportive housing is part of a continuum of housing that meets a diverse range of needs and provides 178 residents on fixed or low-incomes at risk of homelessness with a place to call home. Residents are welcome to stay as long as they are able and we can adequately provide care as needed.
