About SSVP Affordable Housing Project

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to serve people in need with love, respect, justice and joy, and to help create a more just and compassionate society. The Society began in 1833 helping people with a foundational philosophy to meet with people one to one to address their needs and the needs of safe, secure and affordable housing. Today, almost 200 years later, SSVP is present in over 150 countries with 800,000 members and every year helps over 30 million people.
We have been serving people in London for over 160 years!
There is a chronic need for affordable housing in London and surrounding area. Currently, there are over 6,250 families and/or individuals in need of safe, secure housing.

Building Hope for Housing Campaign In response to the chronic and acute affordable housing crisis in London, the SSVP has obtained a portion of property from the Diocese of London adjacent to St. Andrew the Apostle Church located in northeast London. The location is ideal with easy access to shopping, schools, transit and a community Centre.

The plan is to build a 73-unit apartment building that will contain one and two bedroom units - with 17 accessible and all designated affordable - including space for community support on the ground floor.

We are asking you to partner with us as we embark on this vital construction project building hope for individuals, families and the community of London.
