The Grimsby Affordable Housing Partnership (GAHP) was founded in 2007 to provide a solution to the need for affordable rental housing in Grimsby and West Niagara to reduce and prevent homelessness for individuals of low and moderate income.
The goal of YWCA GAHP is to provide transitional supportive housing which will lead individuals to self-sufficiency within the time frame of one to three years.
Together with our partners, we provide supportive programming and housing solutions to individuals who are committed to attaining self-sufficiency. Our partners include community organizations, individuals, service providers and the faith community as well as residential clients.

Are You a Landlord?
YWCA GAHP maintains a waiting list of clients in need of affordable housing. We are looking for landlords who are willing to work with us to provide rental housing for these individuals and families.
When you lease your property to us you will have a secure tenancy with secured rent being paid directly to you by YWCA GAHP according to the tenancy agreement. The lease between YWCA GAHP and the landlord is retained in a traditional landlord-tenant relationship. Even if a client becomes ineligible to participate in the housing program or if the apartment is vacant, we still pay the negotiated rent as agreed in the lease.
Our current landlords enjoy peace of mind and cost savings with reduced advertising and vacancy costs, as well as saving valuable time. If you are interested in working with us through our landlord program please contact us.
