Lethbridge Housing Authority – building healthy families and sustainable communities with appropriate and affordable homes.

Lethbridge Housing Authority (LHA) is a Housing Management body established by Ministerial Order in 1995. Its purpose is to provide affordable housing to seniors, individuals and families through the operations and administration of funding and properties owned by the Province of Alberta. Recognizing that housing is more than just the bricks and mortar of a building, LHA is a respected partner engaged in building vibrant communities through strong partnerships. We currently partner with several organization in order to address the complex social issues behind housing stability and homelessness in Lethbridge. We will explore the role Lethbridge Housing plays in the housing continuum, what more can be done to keep our most vulnerable citizens safely and affordability housed and what are we missing in Lethbridge to achieve a reduction in homelessness.
