About Men’s Transitional Housing (Karahkwa House)

Brantford Native Housing developed a 4-bed transitional home known as Karahkwa House. Karahkwa House is for Aboriginal men in recovery from alcohol or drug use and can stay for up to one (1) year while learning how to maintain their sobriety.

This program offers to Indigenous men, safe, supportive housing and a culture-based learning environment to develop the skills they need to succeed as strong, confident and self-sufficient men in the broader urban environment. The transitional housing program provides accommodation for 4 residents in self-contained units. Upon starting the program there is a mandatory Life Skills course. There is a gathering place, and a sweat lodge available for the residents’ use. Residents may participate in the program for up to one year and are expected to actively work with staff toward achieving the goals identified in their personal care plan.
