Cambridge Kiwanis Village Non-Profit Housing Corporation was founded in 1989 by the Kiwanis Club of Cambridge under the leadership of Harry Rossdeutscher. In the early 1990’s Kiwanians supported the Non-Profit as it developed affordable rental housing on two sites in the Preston area of Cambridge. Approximately 75% of the 278 units are occupied by households who receive a rent subsidy. Cambridge Kiwanis Village is governed by a Board of Directors who are also Cambridge Kiwanis members.
Cambridge Kiwanis Housing has a history of working in partnership with other community groups in order to enhance the quality of life for our tenants and the people of Cambridge in general. We provide space to the Preston Heights Community Group at our site on Linden Drive. The community group in turn offers a range of programming and services to children, youth and adults in the Preston Heights neighbourhood.
