Award for Excellence

2017 Winner

Homes First Society

Homes First Society provides more than 250 units of housing in Toronto to at-risk individuals with the fewest housing options. As a supportive housing provider, Homes First Society employs a low-barrier, evictions-prevention approach, with a range of supports and programming in place designed to build life skills and support reintegration into the community for their tenants.

About the Award

ONPHA’s Award for Excellence recognizes non-profit housing providers that respond to tenant or community needs with imagination and insight.

These outstanding organizations go beyond their housing mandates, building strong tenant communities and partnerships, housing populations that have been poorly served, advocating and supporting new development, and demonstrating originality and innovation to manage housing more effectively.
