who we serveAs a provider of inclusive, affordable and accessible housing, homeEd serves a diverse range of individuals and families who may otherwise struggle to meet their housing needs.

Our tenants include individuals and families who are making less than median income and cannot afford to pay market rents.

Some of our tenants can be counted amongst the city’s “working poor”—Edmontonians who are working full time but struggling to earn a living wage. They may be newcomers to Edmonton, single parents or people who lack the education, skills or abilities to quickly find a job in Edmonton.

A number of our tenants are facing health challenges or disabilities and may be receiving Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) or Income Support. The ability of some of these individuals to earn a living and pay for housing is limited. Others have special social or physical needs.

In addition, some of our tenants are attending school or participating in work training and skills development. Others are skilled workers in transition who are simply starting a new phase of life.

Finally, a number of our tenants have been homeless or have been at risk of becoming homeless. With access to a homeEd apartment or townhouse and with the coordination of appropriate support services, they are able to avoid becoming one of the more than 2,300 estimated Edmontonians who do not have a place to call home.
