Real Homes

A safe and secure home is a basic human right.

Without a home, staying well and finding work is a real challenge. Stella’s Circle offers housing programs that help people find homes so that they can get on with the job of living.

Safe, secure and stable housing is essential to well being. Stella’s Circle helps address the need for affordable housing by offering 76 housing units throughout the City of St. John’s. We work with landlords to support people find and stay in safe, appropriate housing.

Stella’s Circle provides mentoring and related assistance to many community organizations across the province. This includes training and support to eight rural Housing Support Workers located throughout the province.

Stella’s Circle is a founding member of End Homelessness St. John’s.
