Who we are

As of April 1, 2021, Houselink Community Homes became Houselink and Mainstay Community Housing.
We joined with Mainstay Housing to better serve our tenants and participants and to build more housing. Learn more by visiting our new website:

  • We offer mental health and addiction programs and offer many community programs to reduce social isolation and build a community of peers
  • We have housed more than 2,500 people and served over 80,000 meals
  • We train participants in basic and transferable work skills an we employ them in part time casual jobs
  • We offer a comprehensive basket of services. After 40 years, we cover the entire GTA. We advocate and educate to address homelessness
  • We currently house 500 individuals, including 60 families. Our goal is to ensure that those most at risk of homelessness, never again face life on the streets


In addition to permanent affordable housing, we provide a wide range of services to support recovery for those living with mental health challenges and addictions. Our social programs bring participants together to help address their biggest threats – poverty, social isolation and food security.
