SIMCOE, ON – SEPTEMBER 28th, 2018 – The Haldimand-Norfolk Social Services & Housing Department would like to announce that, as of October 1st, Homeless Prevention Services including the Emergency Housing and Housing Stability Bank programs will be delivered by the Department. This change is being done in an effort to coordinate and centralize housing and homeless support services for both Haldimand and Norfolk. Those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless are asked to call the intake line at 519-426-6170 or 905-318-6623 Ext. 3134 for assistance.

The Haldimand-Norfolk Social Services & Housing Department will continue to offer their existing housing programs such as the Centralized Wait List for Rent Geared to Income Housing, and the Housing Allowance, Home Ownership and Ontario Renovates programs.

The goal of consolidating homeless prevention services within the Haldimand-Norfolk Social Services & Housing Department is to create a more integrated and coordinated approach to responding to and ending homelessness and  to help better serve Haldimand and Norfolk, especially those most at risk.
