Places for People aims to help solve these problems by:
Buying run-down property
Renovating this property with community input
Renting at affordable rates
Allowing tenants to accumulate assets
Providing social supports necessary to ensure a successful tenancy
Serves the underserviced in our community
Strengthens the community
Improves our housing stock
This is how we do it:
Provide tenants with long-term affordable rental housing. This makes the family's shelter secure, allowing them to afford other life necessities and make progress on other issues.
Set aside in a trust fund a small amount of the rent the tenant pays, for their future. Without having any impact on their small budget, tenants are able to build an asset that will help them move forward when they are ready.
Provide appropriate social supports for each family. Give each family access to the resources they need to help get skills and education to move forward. This also grows a mutual sense of belonging that serves everyone.
Renovate old buildings into new housing in locations within walking distance to shopping, schools, and medical care. This improves existing housing stock, increases housing capacity, and improves the streetscape.
