Indwell in Waterloo Region
One of Indwell’s core values is hope. As a Christian charity, the hope that Jesus models is one of the cornerstones of our mission of providing affordable housing communities that support people seeking health, wellness, and belonging. As the author of Hebrews says, “This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor” (Hebrews 6:19).
We’ve been experiencing this hope in the Region of Waterloo where our first housing community, St. Mark’s Place, is currently under construction—while our second community at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church is in pre-development.
Meanwhile, Indwell was recently asked to provide our supportive model of Hope and Homes in two buildings already owned and operated by Waterloo Regional Housing. We officially began this partnership on May 1, 2022 at Weber Street Apartments in Kitchener and Robert Kerr Manor in Cambridge. This is a new venture for Indwell, and an opportunity to provide hope to nearly 80 tenants that we otherwise would not have known!
We’ve also experienced hope through a food and clothing drive that was fulfilled by generous donations from churches in Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge—designated for our tenants experiencing food insecurity. There’s hope for residents whose lives have previously been disrupted by misfortune: hope knowing there will be a friendly face each day ready to help, and hope that each one of our tenants anticipates being treated with dignity and love because they are worth it.
