Jimi Russell is well known throughout the Niagara community for his continuous volunteer work.
Bethlehem Housing was created by local Housing Heroes that were concerned about the issues of homelessness in Niagara. What started as a grassroots initiative has grown to help over 300 families each year by providing housing and supports to help stabilize their lives.
Today, over 5,500 households – including over 2,500 children – are on the wait list for affordable housing in Niagara. This is a 20% increase since 2010.
Our work is urgent and the demand is growing! Bethlehem Housing and Support Services currently operates 3 affordable supportive housing buildings with a total of 109 rental units located in St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.
In the Spring of 2018 construction will begin on a new affordable housing building offering 127 rental units in downtown St. Catharines. Click here to learn more about the development.
Bethlehem is an active part of the solution and we are inviting the community to join us as we solve this community issue together.
