Eviction Prevention Waterloo Region was the recipient of the 2022 Spirit Award 2022 from the United Way Waterloo Region Communities. The funding extends into 2023, making it possible for tenants who are BIPOC, 2SLGBTQ+, living with disabilities, immigrants or seniors to have a fighting chance to keep their homes. This is a project that brings many community partners together and directly addresses the risk of homelessness for the most underserved groups. Future partnerships with regional municipalities are needed to mitigate the impact of inadequate enforcement of tenants rights, and introduce tenant supports and relocation strategies.
