Trip to Turkey Point
Trip to Turkey Point

The Tim Horton’s Foundation provided us with a bus which we used for a fabulous trip to Turkey Point.  We barbequed, and spent a day on the beach.  For many of our tenants, this was the first outing many of them had in years.

Looking for supportive housing in Waterloo? We can Help.


SHOW is comprised of 30 one bedroom units housing single adults who want to live in an environment which provides 24/7 support and 2 apartments in the community.  We operate under a harm reduction philosophy and assist individuals who want to address their substance use issues in a non-judgemental environment.



SHOW supports and services include a Harm Reduction focus for addictions issues; Life/Living skills; Health Supports such as CCAC or other home care services; Group meetings, recreational activities, volunteer programs; Family reconciliation, counselling, literacy supports, employment and educational referrals, and Community Education: public speaking, and participation in community events.



Although we receive some funding from the Region of Waterloo, we depend on the community to provide us with additional financial supports to assist with tenant care, including programs, services and health supports. We rely on financial donations and appreciate the support of faith groups, businesses, individuals and foundations.



We are staffed 24/7 and will post available staffing opportunities including full-time, part-time, and relief positions. Volunteers are appreciated and always welcomed at SHOW. We accept placement students working towards a degree/diploma through an accredited college or university. A placement here will help prepare you for a career in social services, healthcare, fundraising, diet and nutrition and recreation.
