Homes come in many shapes and sizes but each is a safe, stable refuge and allows us to connect to others. Everyone needs a home. With a home people can be part of a community, obtain ID, register for social services and keep in touch with family and friends. With a home people gain respect, dignity and the ability to care for themselves and others.
The vast majority of homeless people – even those with severe mental health and/or substance use issues – can successfully stay housed and off the street with appropriate housing and supports.
Homes First works with others to advocate for fair and equitable funding for social housing providers and the creation and adoption of a national housing strategy.
