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

New Project in Kitchener

A Place to Call Home

With almost 5,000 households on the waiting list for affordable housing in Waterloo Region, the need is as great as it has ever been. MennoHomes is responding with a unique new partnership. We are redeveloping 544 Bridgeport Road East in Kitchener. Phase 1 is already underway and when completed in spring 2021, will include 48 new residential apartments. To learn more and for updates, follow the links to A Place to Call Home.

The main floor is starting to take shape! This will be a shared space for Parents for Community Living and St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Let's head back to 544 Bridgeport to see what's been happening there. There are some nice bright windows in the community room now. This space also has an exterior entrance for use by groups from the local community.

Bruce Weber, the volunteer coordinator for Mennonite Disaster Service, isn’t afraid to lead by example, and work in some of the more challenging locations to make sure the back addition remains sturdy, comfortable, and energy efficient.

It was wonderful to have some skilled trades helping out to make sure things are done right. Thanks to the volunteers from Conestoga Carpenters in St. Jacobs!

No insulation in the sloped walls would have made for a cold house but would have been “normal” when it was built in 1925. Thanks to our volunteer Bruce Horst, our new tenants will be warm with newly insulated walls!
