October 22, 2020 is the 20th anniversary of Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day, and here at Bethlehem Housing we are thankful, and we appreciate all of the creativity, and hard work that our early childhood educators from our EarlyON Centre do each day.
On June 1, we opened the doors to 127 families at our new North Church Court location. Andrea has gone from barely being able to afford a hotel room, and living out of her suitcase, to now having a beautiful apartment. The opening of our new location has finally given Andrea and her newborn son the ability to grow together, and call North Church Court home.
On June 1, 2020 we opened the doors to our very first tenant who has courageously shared his story. Michael has been living in his new apartment for a few months and we have already witnessed a significant increase in his confidence and independence. His story is just one example of many on the positive impact that affordable housing has on the Niagara community.
