Host Home Provider

How to Become a Host Provider...

The Host Home Program seeks providers living in the Halton Region who can provide youth 16-24 with a private/separate sleeping area for up to four months.

Youth who apply to participate in the Host Home Program are prescreened for current addiction or mental health crisis and will be referred to more appropriate shelter programs if needed.

Providers must also provide youth with a grab-and-go breakfast (minimum of a cereal bar, fruit and juice box daily), warm nutritional supper, as well as access to laundry services and washroom facilities. Youth are expected to make arrangements for their lunch daily at no cost to our providers. Providers are reimbursed with a per diem of $35.00 per day/per youth in their home.

To become a Host Home Provider contact Kamila at Bridging the Gap to complete an application, provide a current criminal and vulnerable sector check, and to schedule an in home visit to ensure the home is appropriate. Once completing the application, providers will be informed if they are successful in their application and will be provided with a Host Home Manual which describes payment, rules and expectations. Kamila can be reached at 905-635-0665.
