Housing YES Charlevoix! is a housing advocacy group working to support better housing solutions for year-round residents in Charlevoix.
Statistics show that 40% of homes in Charlevoix are year-round residents.
The research and statistics also show that this problem affects middle-income families as much as it does those in the lower-income bracket.
Who We Are: We are a diverse group, composed of business owners, elected officials and residents.
We work to mobilize and educate the community to support projects that increase housing availability in Charlevoix— a problem that has persisted in the small northern city of 2,300 for more than a decade.

While city officials have taken some steps to address the housing issue, the problem persists. There are many different solutions to this housing crisis, and we concede that we don’t have all the answers. However, if this issue is not addressed now in our community, we will find ourselves even more severely impacted if business owners, elected officials and residents don’t step up and take action collectively. Be part of the solution and get involved today.
We Support Housing North
As a partner with us, Housing North has agreed to serve as a fiduciary for our group, because it takes resources to do this work, including funding. If this crisis is not addressed now, and if we don’t step up and collectively work on solutions, we will find ourselves even more severely impacted.

On behalf of all of us, thank you!
