There are 5,000 people in Toronto without a safe stable place to live. Hundreds live "rough" - in ravines, stairwells or on the street. Hundreds more suffer with mental illness and addictions. This is who we serve, people with the fewest options. We believe that people need a home before they can begin to work on their other issues.
The vast majority of vulnerably housed and homeless people - even those with severe mental health and/or substance use issues - can successfully stay housed and off the street when the right supports are in place.
