Bethlehem Housing and Support Services was created by local Housing Heroes that were concerned about the issues of homlessness in Niagara. What started as a grassroots initiative has grown to help over 300 families each year by providing affordable housing and supports to help stabilize their lives.
In partnership with PennTerra Group and FirstOntario Credit Union, Bethlehem Housing and Support Services is building a new affordable housing development project offering 127 rental units in downtown St. Catharines. This development offers a made-in-Niagara solution to provide affordable housing and support services for individuals and families of low to moderate income.
