Homes in supported housing units

In our units, we offer a range of supported housing solutions for homeless people who have a background of substance abuse and mental health challenges or other life situations that make successful housing difficult.

Support for successful housing in your own home

We provide customer-focused supported housing service and communal and enhanced service housing in Housing First and substance-free units. We also provide temporary and emergency accommodation.

Our residents are important to us, and their wellbeing is a priority. The aim of supported housing services is to ensure successful housing and to strengthen the resident’s ability to manage their daily life on their own terms. We also offer our residents goal-oriented support on the pathway to rehabilitation and a more independent, meaningful life.

Become a resident through the wellbeing services countys social services  

To be eligible for a rental unit from us, you must have a history of either prolonged or recurrent homelessness, as well as substance abuse and mental health challenges. To get a home, you must first contact your local wellbeing services county’s social services, as applying for our housing requires a positive housing decision from social services.

We have supported housing services in Helsinki and in the West Uusimaa, the Vantaa and Kerava, the Central Uusimaa and the Southwest Finland wellbeing services counties.

What is it like living at Blue Ribbon? 

In our housing service and communal and enhanced service housing units, residents live in their own homes, i.e. in rented apartments, which are subject to the Act on Residential Leases. Residents are supported by our staff who are trained in the social and health care field. Depending on the unit, support is available 24 hours a day or on weekdays.

Blue Ribbon has supported housung units that are substance-free and units where substance abuse is not a disqualifier. Once housing is secured for the person experiencing homelessness, it is easier to find the ability to move forward on the rehabilitation path or to stabilise their life situation. This cannot be done from the street.

In our services, each of our residents is treated as an individual with their own challenges, needs and aspirations. We have a number of customer-centred rehabilitation models, and our professional staff will help find the one that is best for each individual.
