Eradicating homelessness through action

Founded in 2019 at the University of Toronto Scarborough, we are an organization addressing homelessness through advocacy, engagement and action across Ontario.

We address homelessness from multiple angles

Advocacy

Change requires a voice to be heard. We communicate homelessness issues to local leaders, to make sure that the needs and concerns of the homeless community are considered and addressed.

Engagement

Building a community of motivated and like-minded members allows for sustainable change. We organize events for the University of Toronto student community in order to get them involved with advocacy and donation initiatives.
