Landlords in Richmond County Invited to Connect on Housing Issues Richmond County, NS - The Strait Richmond Housing Matters Coalition is inviting a landlord representative from Richmond County to participate in addressing housing challenges and opportunities by becoming a coalition member. The Coalition represents several sectors of our communities including government, health, community services, victims of family violence, seniors, persons with disabilities, and community advocates.
New Co-Chair of the Housing Coalition, Warden Amanda Mombourquette, noted that “landlords will bring a valuable private-sector perspective to this group that ensures our actions support innovative solutions to the housing challenges faced in our rural communities. As members of the Coalition, the new landlord representative will be actively involved in the Coalition’s decision-making processes.” Warden Mombourquette and Celeste Gotell were welcomed as co-chairs of the group in February 2021.
Mombourquette further thanked Mayor Brenda Chisholm-Beaton for her previous leadership as Chair of the group, stating “the Coalition has made significant progress building relationships among service providers and that success is in large part due to the Mayor’s commitment to improving housing options for some of our most vulnerable citizens.
” To express your interest in joining the coalition, fill out this short questionnaire at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/srcoalition
The deadline for submitting your expression of interest is April 20, 2021.
The Coalition is committed to advancing our vision of ensuring that inclusive, healthy, affordable, sustainable, and accessible housing is available in Strait Richmond communities. This is an opportunity for a local landlord to support that vision and improve the housing challenges across the region.
The Strait Richmond Housing Matters Coalition began in December 2018 after a concerned group of citizens interested in housing came together following the October 2018 Community Think Tank – Housing Matters. The Coalition is comprised of individuals and members of organizations that represent a wide spectrum of housing related issues including, community health and social service organizations and municipal representatives. Our vision is inclusive, healthy, affordable, sustainable, and accessible housing is available in Strait Richmond communities.
