Stories & Testimonials From People We've Helped
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.
Caring and genuine, the Enercare Fresh Start Program was developed with input from Enercare employees. They wanted to ensure that Fresh Start would provide significant support to the communities they lived and worked in. Recognizing that families who find themselves in a temporary housing due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances have little to no processions, the Enercare Fresh Start Program is designed to help families transitioning from temporary housing to a home of their own.
