    Affordable Housing

    Reside addresses the issue of homelessness and the lack of affordable housing by leveraging the availability of underutilized properties.

  • Employment & Training

    By employing a social contractor to renovate the Reside property, individuals experiencing employment barriers have an opportunity to gain practical training and work experience in the trades.

  • Environment

    The Reside properties are renovated to be eco-friendly to promote environmental sustainability, as well as to generate cost-savings for the tenants.

    Restoring underutilized heritage properties not only contribute to the growing number of affordable houses, it also protects and revitalizes valuable cultural and architectural heritage, giving the site a new life with a meaningful purpose.

    Social Corporate Engagement

    Reside offers opportunities for different organizations and corporations to give back to the community! Teams can spend a day team building and helping with light renovations to transform these properties into homes for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
