STRATEGIC PLAN: 2022–2024
Indwell’s three-year strategic plan is themed Grow Well. As we anticipate supporting 1,500 people by July 2024 (100% growth), we recognize the need to expand in a responsible and sustainable way. This focuses on four key pillars.
The examples listed below are just a few of many initiatives that are part of this plan:
1. Tenacious Tenant Care
We believe our tenants deserve the best opportunity to move towards wellness and this requires a relentless pursuit of the very best homes and care we can provide.
Aging in Place: One of our cross-regional teams is developing a framework for older tenants and those with limited mobility to age in place, thriving in the comfort and security of their homes.
2. Thriving Staff
When we care for ourselves and each other as staff, we are able to care for others and accomplish our mission comprehensively.
Our Human Resources team have been leading staff through a series of reflection and growth activities. These include coaching and presentations around issues such as diversity, retreats for spiritual renewal and self-care, and developing a growing catalogue of training material.
3. Responsible Growth
We need to grow to meet the demand for supportive and affordable housing. We must ensure that our systems, capacity, and resources sustain this growth.
Flourish, a non-profit real estate development services organization, launched in 2021. Flourish deploys the accumulated experience of Indwell to support clients such as municipalities, non-profits, faith communities, and other organizations to create affordable housing solutions that promote community well-being—and, in turn, support Indwell.

4. System Disruption
People are best served when Indwell leads the way in bringing together the strengths of government, healthcare providers, faith communities, advocates, and citizens, to create real change.
Our team advocates at all levels of government to make supportive housing a priority. This includes identifying gaps in funding and demonstrating how Indwell’s model of housing affordability with supports provides one of the best solutions (that we know of) to ending homelessness.
