Stepping Stone Community Services Society provides housing programs and services in Langley that include, supported housing, affordable housing and rent supplements.
Creek Stone Place is owned by BC Housing and operated by Stepping Stone Community Services Society. It provides 49 self-contained units with 24/7 on-site supports for people who are transitioning out of homelessness.
Supports include one hot meal a day, wellness checks, life skills training, connection and referral to community services and support groups. There is office space in the building for the Intensive Case Management Team.
All applicants must be over the age of 19 years, need additional support to maintain housing and be a Langley resident experiencing homelessness. Stepping Stone and BC Housing lead the resident selection process with local service providers to ensure an appropriate mix of residents.
The supportive housing uses a housing first approach that has demonstrated that people are more likely to seek services and take steps towards personal stability if they have a home. Participants sign a program agreement (similar to a tenancy agreement) and pay rent.
Rainbow Program is an enhanced supported housing program that provides support for 25 individuals who live in their own apartments, have subsidized rent and access to daily staff support.
Support services include medication monitoring, in-suite support, leisure and education support, information about community resources and a meal program.
Stepping Stone supports individuals to live in market housing through rent supplements. Supplements are provided through our Mental Health Services and Homeless Outreach Services.
