Treasurer of the Board – Welcome Housing & Support Services 

Our mission is to assist single individuals who have been homeless or at risk of homelessness to create and maintain their homes, and our vision is to ensure the competent, efficient, caring provision of safe, affordable, long-term housing to single men and women, and to be recognized as a valuable asset in the community.
 
Welcome Housing is the third largest non-profit housing provider in HRM and has been doing this work for over thirty years. We provide deeply affordable housing to 78 single men and women, most of whom have experienced some combination of homelessness, addiction, and mental health issues.
