Housing Hero

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 2,000 families by providing housing and supports to help stabilize their lives.

A Housing Hero believes that everyone deserves a home.

Today, over 5,500 households – including 2,710 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! 

The cost of rent is rising dramatically at a time when most renters have already devoted up to 55% of their income to rent. Migration, job growth, and the cost of owning a home have raised the demand for rentals, resulting in lower vacancy rates and higher rents.

Bethlehem Housing and Support Services is an active part of the solution and we are inviting the community to join us as we solve this community problem together.

Be part of the affordable housing solution by contibuting your time, talent or treasure!

Together we are building a Niagara where everyone has a home!
