In 2001, SHHC was incorporated as a non-profit and moved to its present location at 2500 Lawrence Avenue East. By 2003, SHHC received its charitable status.
We have worked with close to 400 landlords to promote affordable market rent accommodation and housed approximately 800 families in 2009. Our programs continue to grow as our clients’ needs diversify.
We are excited that our geographical scope to York Region is expanding through the addition of two new programs.
The Hidden Homelessness Among Newcomers project will disseminate housing information to landlords, newcomers and settlement workers in both Markham and Scarborough.
The Housing Database for York Region project is comprised of a partnership between SHHC, COSTI Immigrant Services and Citizenship for Affordable Housing. The project activities include the development of a housing database along with landlord recruitment which will help newcomers in York to find more affordable housing.
