The Home Advocacy Services (HAS) program brings our Storefront services to individuals who live close to Project Genesis, but have difficulty coming to the Storefront due to reduced mobility or loss of vision.
People in these situations may be isolated, or may have a hard time accessing information and services.
By providing services in their homes, we support homebound service users in understanding and defending their rights, and having access to benefits to which they’re entitled.
The services of this small yet vital program are provided by volunteers and interns, working under the supervision of the program co-ordinator and Storefront staff.
To access these services, or for more specific information, please call Project Genesis and ask to speak with the Home Advocacy Services coordinator.

Participating in our Home Advocacy Services
Our Storefront relies on well-trained volunteer receptionists and advisors who are supervised directly by our knowledgeable and experienced staff. Without these volunteers, we would not be able to provide services to thousands of individuals every year.
Our Home Advocacy Services provides our Storefront services to people in our neighbourhood who are home-bound.
If you speak English and French (any additional languages are an asset), enjoy interacting with people, you may be interested in being part of our team!
