MAKE A HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

2018 CAMPAIGN 

Places for People is a not-for profit charity that created a 

unique model to deal with housing insecurity in Haliburton County.

 

Our Mission


Haliburton County Non-Profit Places for People Corporation

creates secure affordable rental housing in Haliburton County

 for those at risk of homelessness, and supports our tenants

to make a positive difference in their lives.

 

To understand how this works and how your donation can help,

first see how Places for People came about.

 

 

P4P / Make a Home for Christmas / The Beginning from Placesfor People on Vimeo.

 

As we look at some of the houses

that are now Places for People homes,

think of the joy within your own home.


The joy of the approaching season with the family gathering.

P4P bought, renovated and selected me and my children for our first ever Christmas in housing we could afford.”   

 

 

Step1 - Tenants talk about Home Security from Placesfor People on Vimeo.

 “Before I moved into P4P, heating costs sky-rocketed just as Christmas approached, and I was never sure how I’d manage. With P4P, rent is predictable because it includes utilities and this allows me to manage my cash flow. I was able to budget for my kids to participate in the school field trip to Santa’s Village AND Christmas gifts.”   Five of P4P’s seven tenant families are single moms: affordable housing helps them give their kids a Christmas of joy.  

 

Most of us have struggled at some point in our lives, but it is very difficult to plan when the struggle goes on for an extended period.  One repair, or one medical emergency can be frightening.

Step 2 - Understanding living with Financial Insecurity from Placesfor People on Vimeo.

P4P has taught me to hold my head high; my coach reinforces every month that I can make and achieve life goals for myself and my kids.  I’ve come to believe there’s no shame in getting the help I need to improve my mental health so I can get and keep the job I need to support my family. By next Christmas, I plan to be a solid employee and a better parent and partner.”  People cannot thrive without safe and secure housing, and society pays the price.  Help P4P make housing happen in Haliburton County, one home at a time.  

 

Sometimes financial and life skills are not things that we have been mentored in or taught in our live experiences.  

 

Step 3a - The Important of Support from Placesfor People on Vimeo.

 

 

This is one of Places for People's strengths and how it stands out from other housing initiatives.  Places for People recognizes that putting a roof over your head is important - but then you need to have the skills to be able to build a happy successful home.  A Home is far more than 4 walls, and sometimes you need help to build a future.
