Affordable Housing Program

Waterloo Region is in need of
more affordable housing!

Waterloo Region is a caring community and together we can make a difference.

With a small monthly donation,we can help change people's lives together!

Where will my money go?

Your monthly donation will go to assisting those in precarious housing situations, including those who are transitioning out of the shelter system by providing funding and support for security deposits, rent subsidies, unit repairs, and utility deposits.

Charitable receipts will be issued.

Individually, it can be difficult to know how to help, but together we canmake a true difference in our community. That’s why we’re introducing our newest initiative – KW Legacy Home to help ensure there is more accessible housing for those in the region who are in urgent need.

IN 2019 OVER $10 BILLION WAS DONATED TO CANADIAN CHARITIES.
