Matching Gift Campaign Update

Matching Gift Campaign Update

Posted Apr 3rd, 2017 in News & Updates

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Matching Gift Campaign over the last few months. We are excited to announce that thanks to all of your generous donations and support, the Billes Family has invested $100,000 towards our Future Housing Fund!

The generosity of the Billes Family and Canadian Tire Corporation will allow us to continuously provide housing and support services for families in crisis now and in the future. 

It is because of the faithful support of our donors that we are able to continue to grow and accelerate our efforts to set more families on the path to long-term health, safety and independence. Together we are building a vibrant, caring and inclusive Niagara! 


In 2002 the Canadian Tire Foundation for Families through Canadian Tire Financial Services provided the start-up capital for the purchase of our Community Support Transition House.

In recognition of this significant contribution, the house was named The Billes House in honour of the cofounders of Canadian Tire, J.W. and A.J. Billes.

After 15 years, The Billes House has served and will continue to serve its purpose under new ownership to provide affordable housing for individuals and families at risk of homelessness.

In honour of this legacy the Billes Family has re-invested with Bethlehem, in partnership with you, to ensure we can meet the housing needs of our client families long into the future.
