About Kehilla Montréal
Kehilla Montréal Residential Programs is a registered charity created as a communal response to the multitude of pressing housing needs of the members of the Jewish community and broader Montreal community.
Working in collaboration with various partners, Kehilla Montréal Residential Programs is seeking to provide vulnerable members of the Jewish and broader Montreal community with quality, safe and affordable housing options.
It is through the provision of affordable, quality housing that Kehilla Montréal Residential Programs ultimately strives to improve individual and family quality of life, enhance physical security and raise the level of disposable income.
Why Kehilla Montréal?
The scarcity of low-cost, safe and well-maintained housing options compound the challenges faced by individuals and families living in poverty. When individuals and families depending on limited income or government financial assistance spend a disproportionate amount of their monthly income on housing, they do not have the financial resources to meet their basic needs, including food, clothing and transportation. Without housing alternatives, individuals and families living on low incomes are faced with difficult realities, such as having to choose between paying rent, buying food and covering essentials. These are basic necessities and should be available to everyone, regardless of their income.
Le Groupe Kehilla Montréal I, a 68-unit residential building now under construction in Cote Saint Luc, is the first of Kehilla Montréal Residential Programs initiative.
