MISSION & GOALS

GOAL: 

Milton Transitional Housing is a community-based, registered Canadian charity that provides bridge accommodation and supportive counselling to people in Milton who are experiencing a housing crisis.  Our purpose is to assist participants in overcoming the challenges that prevent them from securing and maintaining a stable, affordable home. 

Our goal, “…from HOPE to HOME”, summarizes our belief that lives can be rebuilt with support and assistance from their community.

VISION:

The Milton Transitional Housing program became a reality in July 2011 with a volunteer board and start-up funding support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and agency of the Government of Ontario. MTH’s first participant was accepted into the program in February 2012. In the winter of 2013 we have increased our capacity to three housing units, and our goal is to provide seven supported transitional housing units within five years. 

Halton Region’s Comprehensive Housing Strategy has identified transitional housing as a big part of the solution to the problem of housing crisis (outright homelessless, or the risk of homelessness). Transitional housing is designed to be a bridge from the short-term emergency shelter system (often as little as 30 days in duration) to long-term affordable housing. With MTH, this “transitional” period can extend from four to 24 months and offers housing at subsidized rental rates, along with requiring participants to set goals and undertake counselling and training to help achieve their goals.

NEWS

Donna Danielli, MTH's Executive Director, was featured in an Inside Halton article on August 20, 2014: "Donna Danielli works to prevent Milton, Ontario residents from becoming homeless." READ THE ARTICLE

Milton Transitional Housing moved into new offices in May, located at 25 Brown Street, Milton – sharing space with Habitat for Humanity Halton's RESTORE in Milton. 

Read about the 2013 State of Housing Report for Halton, and Halton Region's Comprehensive Housing Strategy 2014-2024. In it, Regional Chair Gary Carr states that: "Access to safe and stable housing is a basic human right that impacts all aspects of an individual’s life. Where you live  and the supports available to you can influence your health, happiness, your employment and your sense of belonging  in a community."
