We're working hard to provide homes for our residents who are sheltering outdoors.
Unfortunately, creating enough safe, clean, and affordable housing is a goal that cannot be achieved alone. Through grants, partnerships, and direct outreach, we help provide people experiencing homelessness with shelter, free or low-cost food, and other services and resources.
The reasons individuals fall into homelessness can be complex, but the pathway out of homelessness requires individuals to have access to income, housing, and supports. We are committed to ensuring emergency shelters and other services are in place to support people in crisis, as well as longer-term solutions, including the creation of social and supportive housing in partnership with senior levels of government.
