Become a Housing Provider
Having the ability to offer affordable, transitional and permanent housing to individuals and families at risk of or experiencing homelessness is a great way to help with the homelessness crisis our community is facing. If you are a landlord or property owner who can help, please reach out the Housing Resource Centre.

One of the best ways to aid individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness is to volunteer with a well-established organization. As a volunteer, you receive ‘on-the-job’ training and learning from those who are making a difference in our community. Below are local organizations you can contact for volunteer opportunities:


Donations to well-established, reputable organizations in our community, like food banks and shelters, allow the organization to continue providing necessary services to our City's most vulnerable populations.

Perhaps you are tutor who could spare a few hours to help a struggling youth with some homework? Or maybe, you’re a great baker who can drop off your famous banana bread to a local food bank. Email housingstability@brantford.ca to offer a service.
