Housing Help Centre is one of eight centres in Toronto that provides a broad range of housing assistance and serves as an access point for applications to Toronto Community Housing. Housing workers help low-income people find and keep stable housing.

Our Rent Bank Program provides information and support to low income households to help stabilize their housing and prevent eviction and homelessness. Services include access to interest-free loans to pay arrears in rent as well as mediation and counseling.

Streets to Homes follow-up services provides assistance to individuals who were homeless, or at risk for homelessness, and have been housed by the Streets to Homes outreach team. Services include follow-up support for up to one year from the date of placement. Workers meet with clients on an ongoing basis and provide case management and case planning to ensure that the tenancy remains successful.
