The new shelter will help single men, women and couples experiencing homelessness find housing. During the day, residents will receive services from case managers and housing workers tailored to their specific needs. They will also receive increased access to health services, thanks to a collaboration between the City and the Local Health Integration Network.

Homes First has entered into an operating agreement with the City to meet or exceed Toronto Shelter Standards.

Community Engagement

Local residents and business organizations have an opportunity to support the shelter’s success – both for the shelter’s clients and the surrounding community – through a Community Liaison Committee (CLC). This committee has been formed and meetings are ongoing.

Meeting minutes for the CLC is available upon request to ssha.homeless@toronto.ca
