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.

Building Projects

Great movie (The Invisible Heart) and panel discussion tonight hosted by @thekwcf on the topic of social impact bonds.

We certainly feel the pressure as we explore new opportunities for affordable housing. As you prepare to vote in the upcoming election, be sure to see where your candidates stand on issues related to supporting the most vulnerable in our community.

It's been a busy 1-1/2 weeks but our move to new office space at 50 Kent is (mostly) finished. We are still unit #202 but you can find us now next to Abundance Canada on the 2nd floor. Feel free to drop by and say hello.
