About Us: Introduction
Safe at Home Society Yukon is the spark for a new chapter for positive change in Whitehorse and beyond.
A compassionate community working together to end and prevent homelessness, where everyone has a safe and affordable place to call home and can readily access the supports they need, when needed.
To end and prevent homelessness through:
A coordinated people-centered continuum of housing.
Intentional and meaningful relationships with service providers and persons affected by homelessness.
Evidence of homelessness built on data and stories.
Supports for individuals and families who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.
We offer a broad range of housing, service and support programs from a low-barrier, stage-appropriate, and harm-reduction orientation. Every program is person-centered and incorporates cultural safety and traditional knowledge, as well as voice, choice, and empowerment for those who access our services.
