The Housing Opportunity Mentor, In Effect! (HOMIE!) Program is a mentorship program

designed to connect young people seeking housing, education and/or employment

opportunities with caring individuals in their community. For many young people seeking

services at SPY, their current housing interests represent their first time searching for and

securing a safe, stable, independent place to live. This search is often a time- consuming

process conducted exclusively on public transit, which can be discouraging, daunting, and,

at times, fruitless. Even when enrolled in programs that offer a rental subsidy or financial

support once housed, the stressors and duration of the housing search can be a real barrier

for some, and decrease chances of putting those financial supports to use. And yet, we

young person move past these challenges, and make accessible the powerful resources

that can change lives. The HOMIE! Program is designed to provide youth members extra
