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.
