Community Care Program

 

The Community Care Program brings individuals and families and their supporters together, to work through complicated life issues and make life better.

Winkler Affordable Housing

Central Station Community Centre took over the property management duties for the Winkler Affordable Housing units beginning in January of 2018. Additionally, we have taken on the management of the 65 Manitoba Housing units in Winkler as of August 2018.

The Social Housing program provides low-income Manitobans in the greatest need with subsidized housing. Manitoba Housing and Winkler Affordable Housing have a limited supply of rental properties and therefore applicants are housed based on core housing needs. This includes affordability, suitability, and adequacy of your current housing situation.

To apply for housing, please download and fill out the application

If you would like more information on low-income housing, please contact Lori Penner at 204-325-0257 or email housing@winklercentralstation.ca
