Homeless support

Our services include emergency and transitional shelters, street outreach, support services and help to find permanent housing.

Homelessness in your neighbourhood

If you're concerned about a homeless encampment in your neighbourhood or a person who appears to need help, you can call the Street Helpline. Call 1-877-848-8481. Your information will help keep us up-to-date about where our outreach programs are needed most.


If you need an immediate place to stay there are shelters available for youth, families, adults, and people fleeing violence or abuse.

Transitional housing

Street outreach

24/7 street helpline and mobile street outreach teams support people at risk, or homeless.

Drop-in and support programs

Offering meals, out of the cold, and other programs to support people who are homeless.

Help with housing

If you're at risk of losing your housing, are homeless, or need affordable housing, we can help.

Financial help

If you need help paying for food and shelter, you can apply for Ontario Works or emergency assistance.
