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.
WE ARE SEEKING NEW MEMBERS
Tipi Moza has provided subsidized and affordable housing to Aboriginal peoples in the City of Kingston since 1989. Initially we provided housing to 17 families under CMHC’s Urban Native Program. We have grown in the last few years and now provide homes for single individuals and families through funding from Ontario Aboriginal Housing Services.
Tipi Moza has a future that could involve further development of existing properties to meet the housing needs of Kingston’s families of Aboriginal Heritage.
