Supportive Housing

See More Housing Options
SHIP recognizes the need for more affordable housing in Orangeville and is working to expand and revitalize the affordable housing stock.  SHIP purchased 236 First Street, with a plan to re-develop the property and bring permanent housing to individuals in Orangeville.
The new development is comprised of individual homes featuring both studios and two-bedrooms to accommodate individuals and families with low to moderate incomes, which supports an identified shortage of affordable housing in Orangeville.
SHIPs Dufferin Services Team offices will be located on-site alongside office space for community partners.

Development Overview

  • SHIP is providing 27 quality, permanent apartments with complete kitchens within each unit, etc.
  • SHIP will relocate the staff of Dufferin Services Team to this site
  • The location is ideal as there are many amenities within walking distance of the residential area, as well as open space community and recreational outdoor environments
  • There will be a well-landscaped exterior, improving the street view of the site for residents and the surrounding neighourhood
