The People

Tenants at Acadia Place are primarily very low income families (i.e. families that make less than $44,000 and would otherwise be spending more than 30% to 50% of their income on housing), who were either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

To obtain housing in one of these units, most families are referred to Horizon Housing Society, the property manager, through an agency like Inn from the Cold, Aspen Family Services, CUPS Rapid Exit and others. Families will be accommodated based on vulnerability and need, as well as unit availability.
