In 1977, Madison Community Services was one of the first agencies to provide supportive housing to clients experiencing mental health and addictions challenges as well as homelessness. We now provide a total of 128 residential units to our clients. Madison operates seven homes that provide congregate living to 46 clients, in a supportive setting. The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care fund this service. Madison owns two of the houses; leases three through a partnership with Toronto Community Housing (TCH); and leases two directly from the City of Toronto.
In addition, Madison leases 20 bachelor units through a partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). This provides on-site high support services to patients who are making the transition from hospital to the community. As well, Madison has partnered with Mainstay Housing, St. Clare’s Multifaith Housing, and the University Health Network (UHN). This allows us to offer a total of 52 bachelor and one-bedroom units to clients who require medium support and prefer to live independently. There are also 10 units leased from private landlords available to clients.
