What We Offer

The Housing Resource Centre (HRC) is a program of CCRC, funded mainly by the City and County of Peterborough and the United Way of Peterborough and District.

The HRC helps people in Peterborough City and County access and retain housing and prevent homelessness. We offer a range of services to help with issues related to housing.  Whether you need listings of places to rent, help to avoid eviction, one time financial assistance, or help to prevent utility disconnection, HRC can provide help through our free and confidential services.

Our Services:

  • Rental vacancy listings are available online or at our office
  • We provide support, guidance and information on how to apply for affordable housing, how to find or keep housing, including referrals to many local services
  • Low income residents may be able to apply for one-time grants to find or retain housing. This financial assistance is limited and subject to fund availability, strict eligibility criteria and verification
