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 300 families each year by providing housing and supports to help stabilize their lives. 

Volunteers are integral to our success and we are grateful for the support they provide.

Affordable Housing Matters, and the Problem is Real...

More than 5,000 families, will wait 5 years, paying unaffordable rent, where there is no vacancy.

Our work is urgent and the demand is growing! In the Spring of 2018 construction will begin on a new affordable housing building offering 127 rental units in downtown St. Catharines. 


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 issue together.
