“A home is more than just a building—it’s a place of safety, comfort, and belonging”

Building Communities of Hope

A home is more than just a building—it’s a place of safety, comfort, and belonging. It’s essential for our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. But too many people can’t afford a safe and secure home.

That’s why we are dedicated to providing affordable homes that do more than provide a roof over your head. These homes promote health, recovery, and a sense of community and belonging.

For those recovering from addiction or dealing with mental health issues, a safe and welcoming home forms a crucial part of their recovery.

We also support those needing help with day-to-day tasks and health services. Our Semi-Assisted Living and on-site Para-Medical services are integrated into our housing communities, helping everyone live their best lives.

Your donation to More Than A Roof Foundation helps build these kinds of homes. You’re not just giving money—you’re giving hope and a fresh start to people who need it most. You are one of many voices saying “Welcome home! You belong here!”

Your contribution also ensures everyone has a home that nurtures their mind, body, and spirit. Everyone deserves more than a roof over their heads—they deserve a true home. With your help, we can make this happen.

Join us in making this difference today.

“More Than a Roof Foundation understands this intricate connection between health and home”

The Health Impact of Affordable Housing

A home represents more than bricks and mortar; it is the vital foundation of health, well-being, and community connection.

More Than a Roof Foundation understands this intricate connection between health and home. We extend it beyond the boundaries of traditional housing by fostering a community that promotes wellness and social support.

Living environments directly impact our physical and mental health.
We support programs that address these challenges head-on, offering homes that are not only affordable but also tailored to support the health and wellness needs of their inhabitants. For low-income seniors and single tenants, specific wellness programs are incorporated to create a proactive health environment.

More Than a Roof understands that social determinants of health extend beyond the personal sphere. Food security is a cornerstone of this approach, with community-based programs providing nutritious, affordable meals. Access to healthy food is not a luxury, but a fundamental right, an essential stepping stone to physical health and psychological well-being.

The Foundation’s community programs also tackle the silent epidemic of loneliness and social isolation. By hosting social and food events, they create spaces for interaction and companionship, essential elements for mental health. These gatherings are critical to community resilience, fostering residents’ sense of belonging and mutual support.

The driving purpose of the Foundation is to create holistic, supportive environments that promote wellness on all levels. Your support enables this foundation to continue making a transformative difference in people’s lives, turning housing into homes and neighbourhoods into communities. Now more than ever, it is clear: a home is more than a roof.

“Regardless of faith, tradition, culture, or worldview, everyone has a human spirit that thrives on hope and connection”

Building Resilience In the Human Spirit:

Regardless of faith, tradition, culture, or worldview, everyone has a human spirit that thrives on hope and connection. This spirit, however resilient, can sometimes waver under the weight of stress or life’s traumas and failures.

During such trials, one’s faith may get tested, the light of hope may dim, and the will to overcome may seem daunting. However, the innate human tendency is to strive, adapt and recover, drawing strength from sources of support that rekindle hope and restore balance.

More Than A Roof Foundation understands this deep human need, especially during trying times. Our mission is to provide more than just an affordable house; we aim to provide a home and a supportive community that acts as a nurturing safety net.

As a distinctly Christian organization, we honour the spiritual well-being of our tenants, respecting their diverse faith traditions and worldviews. Our holistic approach extends beyond the physical to heal the emotional, mental and spiritual wounds inflicted by life’s harsh realities.

In our affordable housing communities, tenants have renewed hope and resilience. They receive support in the form of safe, affordable shelter and the caring, compassionate community that rallies around them. Our tenants are not isolated; they are embraced and empowered, with access to life-giving programs and activities designed to promote personal and community wellness.

More Than A Roof Foundation cultivates supportive environments that foster personal spiritual wellness. Programs such as chaplaincy and connections with local faith communities offer spiritual nurture and support, counseling, coaching and discipleship.

Through funding from MTRF. coaching , mentoring and chaplaincy support is always at hand, providing solace during significant life events and aiding connection with supportive faith communities.

The aim is not just to alleviate immediate suffering but to foster a space where the human spirit can thrive, rise above adversities and regain hope.

A vital part of our mission is to affirm the human spirit’s resilience and its inherent capacity for hope, growth, and renewal.

“We empower lives through education and bridge the gap for low-income communities”

Empowering Lives Through Education: Bridging the Gap for Low-Income Communities

More Than A Roof Foundation funds education that offers a variety of opportunities for tenants and staff. This includes learning and growing through certifications, degrees, financial literacy scholarships, internships, mentoring, coaching, counselling, and more.

Education for Tenants: In addition to academic pursuits, we support the development of essential life skills. Tenants earn certifications, degrees, and diplomas, gaining financial literacy through scholarships. Internships offer practical experience while mentoring and counselling support personal and professional growth. We break barriers and pave the way for personal success and self-sufficiency.

We invest in staff education for continuous growth. Certifications, degrees, and professional development opportunities are provided, enabling our staff to deliver high-quality services while growing professionally. Mentoring, coaching, and counselling make for a skilled and motivated team.

Educating the Public and Policy Makers: Beyond our immediate community, we strive to inform the general public and policymakers on poverty and housing affordability issues. We raise awareness, promote understanding, and advocate for change through newsletters, articles, and videos. By sharing knowledge, we foster empathy, action, and informed decision-making.
(Do we keep this paragraph?)

Promoting Change and Empowerment: Education serves as a catalyst for change so we provide support to break the cycle of poverty, empower individuals, and foster hope. Together, we create an equal and inclusive society where education is a tool for empowerment and transformation.

Education is central to our whole mission. We open doors for all through diverse programs, empowering individuals to thrive and succeed.
