The support worker will establish a strong working partnership with CEHL staff. The role will focus on establishing a referral pathway, provide up-to-date information and facilitate referrals to local support services for CEHL tenants.
The objectives of this program are to:

- Facilitate early intervention when a tenancy is at risk.
- Provide relevant information about, and referral to, services that may provide effective support to CEHL tenants to sustain their tenancy and/or co-op membership.
- Assess CEHL program systems and practices and provide insights and potential responses to barriers to supporting sustainable tenancies within the program.
