My Home My Choice – Intro and Themes

My Home logo

Since 2010, Windsor-Essex Family Network and partners have been inspiring people and families about what it means to have an affordable home to call one’s own . . . . one that offers security, stability and sustainability in an inclusive society. 

What do we call home? For the purposes of the My Home, My Choice initiative in Windsor and Essex County, a home includes the type of home-setting that any citizen might choose.  This could be about renting or owning. It could mean living in a stand-alone house, secondary suite, townhouse, apartment, condominium, or housing co-op.  It could be choosing to live alone, with a friend, beside or with your family.  It could be about renovating within the family home, or creating private space beside the family home. The My Home My Choice initiative also highlights the importance and value in having supporters be separate from a person’s housing.
