Adams House

In 2002, Adams House, a transitional housing complex located in downtown Toronto, opened its doors to help people living with a wide range of mental health problems realize a better life by providing a safe and clean alternative to life on the streets, in psychiatric facilities or temporary shelters. It is meant to be an interim step for tenants who with sufficient support can transition to more independent living in the community.

The building, which houses 27 tenants, is a joint venture between VHA and COTA, whose staff provide the on-site supports and case management required.

House Calls

House Calls is a program providing frail, homebound seniors with physician-led interdisciplinary care at home. Operating out of SPRINT (a community support organization in North Toronto) VHA provides the Nurse Practitioner, as well as rehab services to the team (occupational and physio therapy). There is no cost to clients as the program is funded by the Toronto Central LHIN, as well as charitable donations and grants. For further information, contact the House Calls team coordinator at 416-481-5099.

Nursing for Residents in Supportive Housing

VHA partners with various community support service agencies in the Central and Toronto Central LHIN communities to provide a range of nursing supports to tenants in supportive housing building
