The COVID-19 pandemic will likely lead to a temporary higher vacancy rate this fall. We’re launching this housing blitz now to capitalize on the opportunity and house up to 100 households experiencing homelessness before a second wave hits. If you have a unit available, please reach out.
Housing is a human right and a public health issue. COVID-19 is exacerbating our housing crisis and it’s more important than ever to help our most vulnerable residents find a safe place to live. Please help spread the word and get in touch if you have a unit available.
People experiencing homelessness have become more visible than ever, as a result of COVID-19. The connection between health and housing is clear. Our goal to find appropriate and affordable housing for 100 people in our community is attainable and critical to their health and the health of our community. Now is the time to be ambitious. Housing is the answer to ending homelessness.
The Eastern Ontario Landlord Organization supports the plan put together by the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa and the City of Ottawa, to help house 100 households currently experiencing homelessness. EOLO commends the City’s steps to make sufficient income support available for the households to be able to pay their rents. EOLO’s members look forward to receiving applications from prospective tenants under the program.
