Housing Department announces innovative HOPE Housing Program

09/08/2014

The Housing Department of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke is pleased to announce an innovative program aimed at  Kahnawà:ke single parents with children, which are a vulnerable sector of the community. The Home Ownership Program Enhancement (HOPE) is designed to help those community members achieve a better life for themselves and their children through a four year job readiness program featuring affordable housing, training/education and a home ownership savings plan.

HOPE is geared to individuals willing to work with Social Development Case Management; a collaboration between the Housing Department, Social Assistance Department, a Mentor chosen by the applicant and other partner organizations in order to identify a long term case plan toward achieving success.

Eligible applicants must:

  • Be twenty one (21) years of age or older, registered on the Kahnawà:ke Mohawk Registry
  • Be a single parent and have children under the age of eighteen (18)
  • Not already own a house or have owned a house
  • Be unemployed, or under employed
  • Be willing to take an academic assessment and follow a comprehensive case management plan
  • Be willing to enter a 2 year educational or vocational program
  • Not have current criminal proceedings
The intake process for eligible applicants begins on Monday, September 15th and ends on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. As the process is intricate, it is necessary that those interested in completing an application contact the Housing Department by calling 450-638-0500 to schedule a meeting with Case Management representatives Leah Horn or Ashley Oake.
