North House

Registered Name: NORTH HOUSE SHELTER

Business Number: 856822077RR0001

The homeless in North Durham don’t live on the street, covered in sleeping bags. They’re your friend’s adult child who moved home with their children due to the high cost of rent, the cousin who sleeps on your couch while searching for an affordable apartment, or the teenager you frequently see in front of the corner store.

North House provides a spectrum of housing supports for those who are at risk or in crisis within the communities of North Durham through programs such as:

  • Assistance with housing search
  • Provide access to stability funds for rent and utility arrears, last month’s rent and moving costs
  • Assistance with rental applications for market and rent-geared-to-income housing
  • Landlord and Tenant Board support
  • Referrals to government and community resources
  • Eviction prevention through mediation with landlords
  • Navigation of the Residential Tenancy Act with tenants and landlords
  • Income tax preparation
  • I.D. replacement
  • Advocacy and referral for the Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Support Program
  • Referral to an emergency shelter
  • Assistance with the Ontario Electricity Support Program application
  • Assistance with the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program application
