Supportive Housing and Community Hub on Charles

The Need

Homelessness is at an all-time crisis level in Waterloo Region

There is an urgent need for affordable and supportive housing options for individuals experiencing homelessness in Waterloo Region.

The challenges are monumental:

Rising rent

Increased cost of living

Limited housing supply

Growing mental health and addiction challenges

Waterloo Region’s Point in Time count from 2021 makes it clear that more creative and innovative housing solutions are needed – NOW.

Visible homelessness in our community, in the form of downtown encampments, are now a part of Waterloo Region’s daily reality.

But what if there were solutions to this growing epidemic?
