Housing Information Sessions for Low Income Families, including Newcomers

(joint project between Markham Public Library and The Housing Help Centre)

The Housing Help Centre recognizes that each individual deserves safe, secure and affordable housing. Using a housing-focused settlement strategy, counselors provide workshops which help families and individuals to find housing, and sustain it, while increasing their knowledge regarding their rights and responsibilities.

Since 2011, THHC has been funded by the municipality of York and the United Way of York Region and has helped community members access habitable and appropriate housing in York Region.

THHC specializes in serving families of limited financial means, who are further encumbered by cultural and linguistic barriers. THHC works with landlords and tenants to create awareness of rights and responsibilities through information workshops, and uses a case management approach to allow clients (with special reference to newcomer immigrants to Canada) to access suitable housing and retain the same through close follow up and mediation where necessary.

The Housing Help Centre has expanded its geographical scope to York Region, and has helped many newcomers to settle and access habitable and appropriate housing in York Region.

Information sessions presented in Farsi and English.
