CHPI Program (Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative) Community Living Durham NorthContact our office 905-852-5919

The CHPI program at Community Living Durham North is open for business.
Our building is closed but we are meeting with clients digitally and are still
offering all our services. New clients are welcome. CHPI offers housing support services to anyone experiencing or at risk of homelessness across Durham North including;

  • Assisting to find and maintain housing
  • Advocating with landlords for tenants
  • Support at the landlord tenant tribunal
  • Applying for and obtaining supports through community resources
  • Connecting people to community resources.

CHPI at Community Living Durham North is back. We are now providing and offering Harm Reduction supplies & supports to people in North Durham.
Effective now, we have both Smoke and Injection kits available. The CHPI program acknowledges that many aspects can lead to homelessness including substance use and works with members of the North Durham community no matter their status of usage and that abstinence is not a requirement for our services. By including harm reduction supports and supplies as part of our services, we acknowledge that each client’s relationship with substance use is different. Providing harm reduction supports and supplies allows our clients who use substances to have increased choice and control over their health, lives and enables them to take protective measures for not only themselves but also their families and our North Durham community.

Contact our office 905-852-5919 – Chantal and Dawn would be happy to help you any way we can
