The chronically homeless, those who are homeless for three months or more, are the hardest to help as they are often also dealing with other issues such as addiction and mental health.
Toronto also has a shortage of 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.
