Tipi Moza (Iron Homes) has been providing homes for Native people in the City of Kingston since 1989.
Our mission is to provide affordable, culturally appropriate, not-for-profit housing, and any related support services for Native people. New and rehabilitated housing for persons of varied backgrounds and of low incomes will be developed over time in the urban areas of Kingston and Frontenac.
How We Operate
We operate on a not-for-profit basis. Rent is calculated using 25% of the households gross income which includes heat and hydro. Rental income and a subsidy is designed to cover the cost of our normal operating expenses such as maintenance and repair, administration, utilities and mortgage. We also set aside funds for major repairs such as roofs, windows and appliances.
We offer the services of a Household Outreach Worker who works directly with families to provide ongoing support to ensure stable tenancies and to offer individual or family support in areas of career, education and cultural community support.
On May 23rd there will be a yard sale at 1061 Sunnyside Rd which is directly across from the Cataraqui arena. All the proceeds from the sale will be going to Chris Sergeant Tsonos. Chris is a 21 year young man who swims for team Canada and will be representing our country this year at the Toronto Parapan Am games. The yard sale will start at 8:00 a.m, as well there will be raffles for donated items. Chris has the good fortune to have lots of supporters including a donation of a signed jersey from Edmonton Oiler Taylor Hall. Please come out and support a future Para-Olympian
