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.
