LMHC Video

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

LMHC welcomes our new board of directors who are meeting for the first time this afternoon. To celebrate, we put together this video of our corporate beliefs, mission and vision.

We believe every individual has a right to live in safe, stable and adequate housing.

We believe housing is the foundation for stabilizing lives.

We believe LMHC tenants should have access to the social services and resources they need.

We believe we must work in partnership with the community, service agencies and government social services.

We believe our housing must be a part of neighbourhoods across London and Middlesex.

We believe it is vital to recognize and honour the diversity of the people we serve.

We believe we must measure our progress and results.

We provide quality, affordable and sustainable housing that’s accessible to those in our communities who are eligible.

Our vision is to be the preferred housing choice for people in need.

Last year, taxpayers from London and Middlesex helped provide homes for more than 500 residents at our properties, including individuals, families, seniors, people with physical, mental and developmental disabilities, women fleeing abuse, new Canadians, and people who had been experiencing homelessness.

More than 500 individuals or families found new homes with us last year.

We are London and Middlesex Housing Corporation.

2012 AGM

London and Middlesex Housing Corporation’s Annual General Meeting for the 2011 fiscal year was held yesterday afternoon in the tenant lounge at 30 Base Line Road West, London.

The AGM was open to the public, and was attended by an enthusiastic group of tenants, staff, board members, community partners, and MPs from London West and London North Centre.

The first part of the meeting was dedicated to a tabletop discussion session, where tenants were able to freely share their concerns and compliments with staff. We appreciate the comments from all tenants.

We are also very thankful for our sponsors for this event, who provided refreshments, items for our SWAG bags, and door prizes: Starbucks Coffee, London Police Service, the Middlesex-London Health Unit, the London Fire Department, London Hydro, Union Gas, 211 Ontario, Orchestra London, and the Grand Theatre.

Our Southdale family community has a newly refurbished basketball court

Yesterday was the grand opening of the newly refurbished basketball court at our Southdale family community.

The project was spearheaded by the board of the Southdale Chaplaincy, one of our onsite partners at the Southdale family community.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation provided the bulk of the funding for the project, and other sponsors contributed to its success.

The Chaplaincy helped the community celebrate by hosting a BBQ for the community.

London and Middlesex Housing Corporation is very grateful for the refurbished basketball court, which will provide a safer place for our Southdale children and youth to play.

A new snowdrift crabapple tree, ready to plant

Yesterday was a day of celebration and remembrance at our Dundas Street adult building.

We planted a snowdrift crabapple tree to commemorate the life of a beloved tenant who passed away earlier this year, and filled a new planter with perennial plants.

All plants – including the crabapple – were donated by LMHC staff, and staff also built the new planter and commemoration plaque.

Tenants celebrated the event with a BBQ.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to make this occasion a success.
