Houses Opening Today Toronto (HOTT)

HOTT is an alternative housing provider that develops and maintains quality affordable housing for those who need it most. 

HOTT's motto, "housing and a helping hand", illustrates how the organization goes beyond the typical landlord-tenant relationship to develop meaningful relationships with its residents. HOTT offers wrap-around support services that create a safe space and continuous access to support and guidance, while building partnerships to help connect residents to their community. Since its founding in 1987, HOTT has proven itself to be a strong partner in Toronto's community housing sector. Their approach to housing and support services offers an example to community housing providers around the province. 

ONPHA is happy to honour Houses Opening Today Toronto, or HOTT, with its 2021 Award for Excellence.
