Every year, 235,000 Canadians experience homelessness.

The reasons are many, but they all face the same grim reality, they have no safe place to call home.  Safe from the cold, safe from the chaos of the city, safe from those who might hurt them.

Last year, in Toronto alone, 70 people died because they did not have a place to call home.

A country as rich as Canada can eliminate homelessness.

Be a part of the conversation on how we can end and prevent homelessness
