The chronically homeless, those who are homeless for 3 months or more, are the hardest to help as they are often also dealing with other issues such as addiction and mental illness.
Toronto also has a shortage in affordable housing. Many homeless rely on temporary shelters, emergency services or a friend’s hospitality. Others live “rough” in the city’s parks, ravines and alleys.
Finding a safe, affordable place to live can be difficult. Homes First is here to help.
