Housing Support

Co-op Voisin, a co-operative apartment project close by on Wiggins Private, provides 2 units for the use of Youville students. We are grateful for the opportunity these units provide to our students. Adequate and appropriate affordable housing is made possible through partnerships such as these. Our partnership with Housing Help has been exceptionally profitable for our moms. During monthly on-site visits to Youville Centre, the Housing Help staff has assisted our clients to:

      • Complete housing applications;
      • Receive information on tenant rights and responsibilities;
      • Conduct housing searches;
      • Acquire information re: emergency housing.

Jessica, one of our support workers, has provided housing support to our clients, both former and current students. She supervised  information sessions to educate our mothers about safe, affordable housing; landlord-tenant legislation; the Ottawa Social Housing Registry; the rental application process; tenant rights and responsibilities; and completion of documentation related to leases. Jessica has represented Youville interests on several housing initiatives:

      • Alliance to End Homelessness;
      • Housing Help;
      • Ottawa Social Housing Registry;
      • Supportive Housing Network.
