Welcome to Prince Edward - Lennox and Addington Social Services.
PELASS is seeking information on the level of interest by organizations, housing developers and landlords related to creating additional affordable housing in Lennox & Addington and Prince Edward either through developing new buildings or through renovations of existing buildings.
Homeowners may be eligible for grants of up to $20,000 through Prince Edward Lennox & Addington Social Services.
We are pleased to provide information on our programs as part of our initiative to "[strengthen] communities through the delivery of Ontario Works, Child Care and Social Housing Services throughout the two counties."
Here's how we can help:
Social Assistance / Ontario Works
Helping people in need through Ontario Works, an Ontario-wide program that municipalities deliver according to provincial regulations and rules. The province shares the cost of delivery with municipalities.
Children's Services / Child Care
We recognize the fundamental importance of child care to our community and the importance of the first years of a child’s life in forming a basis for a good education and social integration into our community and our society. We help by: partnering with other agencies to provide quality child care; providing fee subsidies for parents in need at licensed child care centres in L&A and Prince Edward Counties; and providing support for children with special needs.
The Counties of Lennox & Addington and Prince Edward recognize that well-managed Social Housing (rental housing, developed and maintained by the municipality, with the assistance of provincial and federal governments, for people in need – individuals and families with low to moderate income, seniors, and people with special needs who can live, with support, in the community) is essential for a community to be socially and economically viable.
To apply for any of our programs, please call 613-354-0957 or toll free at 866-354-0957.
