Tiny Shelters

For the reduction of homeless and the sake of humanity, Not Alone Team is pleased to announce the roll out of our Tiny Shelters Initiative. Phase One, a plan for ten homes, is underway with the ambitious deadline to get ten people housed in the NAT-TS by December 21st, 2022.

‘ I lost my job then house once EI ran out. I couldn't get back on my feet. No one will rent to someone on OW and no one will hire someone homeless.’

‘ I am not a junkie I just fell on hard times and my mental health is getting the best of me ’
‘ No. I’m losing hope… hopefully I will have a place before I go to the pearly white gates ’

NAT-TS

As of April 2021, 180 homeless people in Belleville, and 72 of them said that they were homeless for more than a year.  72.8% of respondents had lived within the city of Belleville prior to becoming homeless and 12.3% coming from Trenton and 4% coming from the county and other surrounding towns.

75.3% self-reporting a mental or physical disability and 67.9% being registered on the Ontario Disability Support Program, which requires a formal medical review.            

Tiny Shelters will be similar to projects in Kingston, Hamilton and

Kitchener-Waterloo so we have a proven method to address this.

Phase One Is 10 Homes, What Could Phase Two Be With Your Help?

 If a tiny home was available, 93.8% of respondents said they would be interested in it. Almost all were willing to contribute towards our success with 98.8% willing to do volunteer work on site, and 96.3% willing to pay from their OW/ODSP allowance to cover their program fee.
