Portable Housing Benefit

In 2009, Sara Riel Inc. was one of three agencies in Winnipeg selected to administer the Portable Housing Benefit, with 50 spots allocated. The PHB is a market rental subsidy made available to adults on Employment Income Assistance who have a mental health disability and who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. In addition to the rent subsidy the PHB is directly tied to support services to help ensure sustainable tenancies.
