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.

Changing Futures and Providing Fresh Starts

Sep 23rd, 2019

Caring and genuine, the Enercare Fresh Start Program was developed with input from Enercare employees. They wanted to ensure that Fresh Start would provide significant support to the communities they lived and worked in. Recognizing that families who find themselves in a temporary housing due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances have little to no processions, the Enercare Fresh Start Program is designed to help families transitioning from temporary housing to a home of their own.
