Margaret's Housing and Community Support Services opened its doors in 1984 in honour of the well-known feminist and activist - Margaret Frazer. At Margaret's, we actively work to uphold the visionary's efforts. We provide a continuum of housing and support services for individuals facing mental health challenges through innovative programming, advocacy and education. We understand there is a clear link between decent, affordable housing and good health. Safe and stable housing promotes community involvement, decreases hospitalization and improves quality of life.
