About This Charity
More Than A Roof Foundation supports the ongoing efforts of MTR Housing Society.

The Foundation provides the financial support needed to maintain the programs and initiatives of the society.
About Our Charity
More Than a Roof Mennonite Housing Society was founded by Mennonite Central Committee in 1984 to develop housing-based solutions for people struggling with poverty, poor health and other difficult circumstances. The society’s “More Than a Roof” value-added philosophy aims to build supportive communities where people can heal and create positive change.
In partnership with CMHC, their first community in 1986 was Charleswood Court, a 26 unit mixed income, courtyard community for families and singles.
They have grown to ten communities since then. They manage six family communities across the province, mental health housing in North Vancouver and three buildings for singles in Yaletown.
