Our Homelessness Prevention Program assists community members with housing issues. We also provide tenant and landlord education, tenant and landlord mediation, and public education on homelessness and affordable housing issues.
This program works to:
- To improve access to and connect households that are homeless with community services
- To support households experiencing homelessness to obtain and keep longer-term housing
- And to assist households at risk of homelessness
The Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI) assists community members with housing issues. We also provide tenant and landlord education along with public education on homelessness and affordable housing issues.
Financial assistance for this program is provided through the Ontario Works offices. If you are struggling with hydro and rental arrears, connection fees, and other housing crises and are at risk of becoming homeless, please contact the Ontario Works office. Whenever possible, we try to help people maintain their residence because of the lack of affordable housing in the District.
