Located at 540 Montreal Street at the corner of Joseph St., the Housing Help Centre offers one-stop housing assistance. Since it opened in 2000, the Housing Help Centre has responded to the needs of individuals who are homeless or require affordable housing.

Through the Housing Help Centre, our staff assists people with applications for the Social Housing Registry. They provide practical assistance in gathering required documentation to complete the applications for the Registry. Given that there is an extensive waiting period for subsidized housing, the staff provides more immediate assistance to finding alternate housing arrangements through our Apartment Listing.

Our Apartment Listing is updated three times a week (Mon/Wed/Fri) and  ranges from Rooms to 3-bedroom Apartments.  It is compiled from existing marketplace advertising as well as from numerous contacts with local landlords. Our lists are also faxed to social service and health care institutions to be used by their clients. The list is also located on our website… under the drop-down menu for the Housing Help Centre.

Another important part of the Housing Help Centre is our Prevention Diversion  program. Our Case Managers help individuals and families maintain their current housing. Our staff assist clients in accessing funds for rent/utilities arrears, referrals and budgeting.
