I wanted to reach out and update you on what we are doing at Bethlehem to help our tenants and clients in these unprecedented times. Like you, our team is facing challenges at this time and are having to react to conditions that are rapidly changing. We are taking precautions for the safety and well‑being of our employees while maintaining capabilities to provide stable housing and support services for the most vulnerable in our community.
This project has become a reality as a result of a unique partnership between for-profit developer Penn Terra Group Ltd., co-operative financier FirstOntario Credit Union and non-profit housing provider Bethlehem Housing and Support Services. They are committed to working together towards providing a solution to the need for affordable housing in the Niagara Region.

About This Project
This unique 3P partnership and the support of our municipal and regional governments provides a solution to the affordable housing crisis in our community.
This development offers a made-in-Niagara solution to provide affordable rental housing and support services for individuals and families of low to moderate income with a focus on those who are homeless due to issues with poverty, physical disability, mental health, domestic violence and family breakdown.
In addition to providing 127 affordable housing rental units there will be on-site support services and community amenities, including a day care facility and naturalized play area at 111 Church Street in downtown St. Catharines.
Completion of the development is tentatively scheduled for November 2019.
