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

544 Bridgeport Road

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. MennoHomes is responding with a unique new partnership. We completed Phase 1 of 544 Bridgeport Road East in Kitchener in July 2021. Details and timing for Phase 2 are not yet finalized but are currently under review. To learn more about Phase 1, follow the links to A Place to Call Home.

A beautiful drive to our new office location in Elmira this morning. Please be sure to update our mailing address to: MennoHomes, 100 - 7 Memorial Ave. Elmira, ON N3B 2P8

When we acquired 24 Mill St it had been vacant for 10 years & needed significant renovations before it could once again be suitable for a family to live in. A few months later (and a lot of work by volunteers and MDS) and the Altroudis family was able to move into their new home!

We are pleased to announce the launch of Waterloo Region’s 2021 #VitalSigns Report, with a focus on Affordable Housing. Read our press release to learn more: https://t.co/KShO3xgnBH

Stats can be useful but don’t demonstrate the impact this new housing will have for those who now call it home. Comments from residents help capture the impact of safe, affordable housing. Such as: “I wake up so happy every day. You have no idea what this place is for me."

We love partnerships! So, we are happy that our 48 unit building at 544 Bridgeport Rd E has dedicated some apartments for our project partners, including tenants on the Community Housing waiting list, Threshold Homes, Compass Refugee Centre, and Parents for Community Living.
