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.
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
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
presented in Farsi and English.
