Our Services

HRC provides assistance to anyone in Peterborough City and County who is homeless, at risk of homelessness, or experiencing housing instability.

All of our services are FREE and available to people of all ages at all stages with or without income.

We provide support and information about how to find or keep appropriate housing.  This includes vacancy listings and referrals to many local services. We also provide financial assistance for needs such as overdue rent or utility bills. Contact us immediately if you think you are at risk of disconnection of utilities or eviction.

We specialize in helping individuals or families to keep their housing and prevent crisis and homelessness.

Our staff and volunteers also work with governments and the community on issues affecting our clients, including those related to affordable housing, poverty and social justice.
