Housing and Homelessness Partnership

The Housing and Homelessness Partnership is a coalition of nine organizations committed to working together to put an end to homelessness and housing poverty in Halifax. The parties include: Affordable Housing Association of Nova Scotia, Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation, Halifax Regional Municipality, Housing Nova Scotia, Investment Property Owners Association of NS, IWK, Nova Scotia Health Authority, Nova Scotia Department of Community Services and United Way Halifax.

The coalition came together in the fall of 2013 to address the need with a unified voice and unified action to create the change that is necessary to end homelessness and housing poverty.  

United Way Halifax is the Secretariat for the Partnership. Our role as Secretariat is to provide logistics, operational, and project management support.
