All-Together Affordable Housing Corporation (“All-Together Housing”) is a registered charitable housing corporation founded in July 2007 by four local agencies:
- Community Advocacy and Legal Centre
- Hastings Housing Resource Centre
- Three Oaks
- United Way Hastings-Prince Edward
An active member of the Hastings-Prince Edward Poverty Roundtable and Affordable Housing Work Group, All-Together Housing is well suited to engage in the provision of affordable and supportive housing as we are part of a remarkable array of community networks and partnerships.
The corporation owns and operates a transitional housing project called Tom’s Place (Belleville) for individuals who are homeless or at risk-of-homelessness and a five-unit building at 51 Victoria Avenue for low-income individuals living with chronic illnesses.
We are the lead agency for an innovative, supportive housing model called the Quinte Community and Housing First Partnership, which is currently being implemented at 450 Sidney Street, Belleville.
We are currently involved with a local affordable housing developer, Springale Development Inc for an exciting new 32 unit affordable housing project at Great St. James Street, Belleville and a 15 unit affordable housing project for low-income seniors in Deloro (Marmora and Lake)
