Markham Interchurch Committee
For Affordable Housing

MICAH was established in 1988 as an affiliation of Markham churches from the United, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Mennonite traditions.  At present seventeen churches are members of MICAH. The values that guide its work for affordable housing are based on the need to support the vulnerable in our community, demonstrate respect for the individual person and demonstrate concern for building communities that are stable and secure.

The corporate objectives of MICAH are to:

Facilitate the building of affordable housing for seniors, families,
singles and people with disabilities with low or moderate incomes
Oversee the management of MICAH housing projects

In addition MICAH works to:

Educate residents of the Town of Markham about the real needs for
affordable housing
Advocate to all levels of government for the development of
affordable housing
Encourage and support the construction of affordable housing by
other housing providers
