Coast Mental Health works in partnership with clients, local health authorities, family doctors and other organizations to match people with Coast’s resources: housing, support services and employment & education opportunities. We do not maintain our own housing registry or work directly with individuals to match them to available housing.


Your donation to Coast Mental Health Foundation provides essential housing, support, and employment services for people with mental illness so they can find their meaningful place in our community – a place to live, a place to connect, and a place to work.
