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 a 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.
