a response to the need for affordable housing

Village Road - Kitchener (2004)

From Construction to Community Building

Paved, sodded and all rented out - MennoHomes first project, completed in 2004, provided housing for 16 families.

With all units now rented, the MennoHomes board is eager to continue in its efforts to have "The Village" be "homes" not only "houses." As we have believed from the start, that means more than attractive design, quality construction and good management. It will mean continuing to invest human energy so that "The Village" can truly become a village, a community where people begin to build trust and familiarity. Sxteen families call "The Village"their home.

Karen Lebold, our Community Worker, works alongside tenants in creating the kind of living community they want for their families. She is also able to refer our families to other helping agencies in the community as the need arises. Karen is on contract with MennoHomes Inc. and works 15 hours a week at "The Village" and "The Rockway Gardens Village". She has experience working with Hanover Family Resource Centre as well as interacting with seniors in a helping position.
