We know that the first step in recovery is making sure that basic needs are met. To help accomplish our mission, CMHA Central Region owns and operates two apartment buildings in Portage la Prairie, MB.
The Fisher Apartments were constructed in 2012 and contain 20 units, including studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and wheelchair accessible suites.
House of Hope was constructed in 2015 and contains 8 studio apartments.
A portion of our apartments are classified as “transitional housing” which means that they are meant for individuals transitioning from homelessness or transient housing to permanent housing. Tenants living in transitional housing can stay for up to 3 years while they learn skills and take steps toward living an independent and integrated life in the community.
Tenants applying to live in either building can access a rental subsidy through Manitoba Housing. Eligible tenants can have their out-of-pocket rental expenses reduced to as low as $285 per month, depending on their income.
How to Apply:
- Download or pick up a copy of our application form.
