Summit Housing & Outreach Programs (under the name of Summit House) was created in 1981 in response to the desperate need for supportive affordable housing for people with diagnosed mental illnesses. At that time, there were virtually no mental health supportive housing projects available for people being discharged from hospital, or for other individuals who were homeless or at a risk of becoming homeless. In 1982 Summit Housing & Outreach Programs opened its first shared living house in Burlington for five people.
Our organization now offers a wide variety of housing options in Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Georgetown and Acton. In addition, we are able to provide a variety of case management services which include assertive community treatment throughout the Region of Halton.
How We Operate
Summit Housing & Outreach Programs is a non-profit charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network.
Staff and Board members continually work to improve the services provided by Summit Housing & Outreach Programs, and every effort is made to operate programs that are sensitive to the varying needs of the people we serve.
Donations and fund raising provide resources for improvements to the homes and for special activities. All private donations are tax deductible.
