A Little About Us

MennoHomes believes quality affordable housing is one of the most effective ways of addressing a variety of social and economic needs in our community and can have a life-changing impact.

For children it means a safe and healthy environment that contributes to their health and well-being. For families it creates the space where a house can become a home. For seniors it provides them with the opportunity to live independently with dignity and self-respect. Our housing projects are economically and environmentally viable and include support services for our tenants. We are committed to a collaborative partnership model to achieve this and invite you to join us.

The Housing Continuum


A Place to Call Home

With over 6,000 households on the waiting list for affordable housing in Waterloo Region, the need is as great as it has ever been. Seniors on fixed incomes are especially vulnerable. MennoHomes is responding with a new project at Sprucelawn Apartments for Seniors in St. Jacobs. Construction of a 28 unit addition onto the existing apartment building is underway. Completion is estimated for summer 2023. To learn more follow the link to A Place to Call Home.
