Housing Hero

Housing Hero, a Bethlehem Housing and Support Services Initiative

Housing Hero was created by Bethlehem Housing and Support Services in collaboration with community members concerned about the growing issue of homelessness in Niagara. What started as a grassroots initiative has grown to provide housing and supports for over 300 families each year.


More than 5,000 families will wait 5 years on a list for subsidized housing, paying unaffordable rent, where there is no vacancy.


Visit the Housing Hero website to learn more about the housing crisis in Niagara.
