Eviction Prevention Support Now at Waterloo Public Library

Promotional Graphic announcing Eviction Prevention Tenant Support will now have regular office hours at Waterloo Public Library

We are thrilled to partner with Waterloo Public Library (WPL) to have an Eviction Prevention Peer Worker on-site at the Main Library every Wednesday from 6pm to 8pm.

The peer worker can be found on the upper level at the desk beside the non-fiction large print books. Please ask staff at the Information Desk if you need help locating the Eviction Prevention Peer Worker.

Social Development Centre's Eviction Prevention program provides holistic support for folks who are facing eviction or having ongoing issues or conflicts with their landlords. Our supports include advocacy, mediation, developing alternative plans to loss of housing, information and warm referrals to other community organizations, and access to space and technology for tenants to attend their scheduled Landlord and Tenant Board hearings.

Eviction Prevention Peer Workers provide support to:

  • 2SLGBTQ+, BIPOC, immigrants, refugees & low-income renter households
  • individuals who are at risk of or in the process of being evicted legally or illegally
  • individuals who are at risk of or experiencing legal or illegal rent increases
  • individuals who are at risk of or experiencing unsafe or unaffordable housing
  • individuals who are at risk of or experiencing homophobia, transphobia or racism in a landlord-tenant relationship
