:: Non Profit Social Housing ::

Organization Overview:
Windsor Homes Coalition Inc. was established in 1975 as a non-profit housing corporation governed by a Board of Directors. In 1977 WHCI purchased nine units of housing in downtown Windsor from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Since that time the organization has periodically added to its holdings of rental properties. In 1995 Windsor Coalition Non Profit Homes Inc. was founded adding ten more single homes to the inventory of residential properties thanks to financial support from the Government of Ontario. These dwellings are all rented at rates that tenants on low and fixed incomes can afford.

Housing Properties:
The two Windsor Coalition agencies currently own and rent 108 housing units located throughout Windsor, but largely concentrated in the city’s downtown core communities. These properties include 14 individual homes, 28 duplexes, 2 triplexes, three 4-plexes, 3 multi-unit row houses and one 6-plex residential housing unit.

None of the Windsor Coalition housing properties have any signage or other markings on them that would indicate from whom the tenants are renting. Similarly, agency property maintenance staff wear neither uniforms nor any other kind agency markings, and their service vehicles are also signage-free. This is done so as to facilitate tenant privacy and to avoid possible stigmas associated with subsidized housing.

Housing Clients::
Prospective tenants are pre-qualified and referred to Windsor Coalition homes by the Central Housing Registry – Windsor/Essex County. Our tenants include single people and families on low and fixed incomes, including seniors and people with disabilities.

Tenant Services:
In addition to providing our tenants with clean, affordable housing, WHCI also assists them through its Tenant Support Program. Services provided include referrals to community service agencies as well as access to counseling, recreational, educational and other specialty programs. The key support person assisting with these program areas is the staff Tenant Advocate who works closely with the Tenant Advisory Council.

Funding Support:
Windsor Coalition homes receive government funding support federally from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, and provincially from the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. Windsor Homes Coalition Inc. also receives generous financial support from the Windsor/Essex United Way.
