All applications were carefully evaluated by the City’s Shelter, Support and Housing Administration and the Housing Secretariat through a comprehensive review process. The following projects have been approved to deliver services to daytime drop-in programs beginning October 1, 2022.
Daytime drop-in programs support individuals who are experiencing homelessness by providing an inclusive, safe and low-barrier space that supports social cohesion and provides nutritious meals and referrals to other community supports as needed. These programs are also an important link to help people find and sustain housing.
Grant recipients operate local, community-based spaces that provide daytime meals, social connection and programming for those who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, as well as information or referrals to related programs for people with a wide variety of needs, including housing help.
