Eviction Prevention and Homeless Supports

The Durham Advisory Committee on Homelessness provides a forum for service agencies, Regional staff and people interested in homelessness issues to share information about resources and contribute to the planning for service delivery across Durham Region.

The Region of Durham currently administers a number of homelessness programs that are funded wholly or in partnership with the provincial government. Together, these programs ensure that a wide range of services are available to people who are homeless or do not have housing that adequately meets their needs. These programs also provide support to households to maintain their current tenancies.

Do you or your family need help to stay in your home or to find a new home?

  • Housing outreach programs assist people experiencing homelessness with finding housing.
  • Eviction prevention programs assist households in maintaining their current tenancies.
  • Emergency shelter programs - provide temporary, short-term accommodations for individuals and families who are homeless.
  • Women and Children Fleeing Violence or Abuse - are for women with (or without) children who are fleeing family violence.
  • Men and Children Fleeing Violence or Abuse - are for men with (or without) children who are fleeing family violence.
  • Supportive Housing - the Region partners with a number of community agencies to provide housing with related supports to individuals and families who require assistance to live independently in the community. Persons requiring assistance should speak with their support agency on how to access these programs.
