Isolation and poverty are the enemies of mental health. Houselink programs build the bridge from isolation to health, good nutrition, affordable entertainment and a community of peers. This year Houselink employed 133 participants in casual role – that’s 23% of our resident population. We also served over 8,500 meals using fewer factory processed foods than ever before. As well, thirty participants found full- or part-time employment, 5 became volunteers and 5 completed education or training programs.
After 40 years, we cover the entire GTA
We own and manage 42 properties across the City of Toronto – from Scarborough to Etobicoke
Our Board are service users
Our Board of Directors is composed of an equal representation including 6 members from our participant population and 6 members from the community at large. This representation ensures a balanced approach to governance issues
We advocate and educate to address homelessness
As a leader in the field, we promote the need for supportive housing.
Mental disorders can lead to homelessness, but they can also be caused by homelessness given the traumatic impact of being destitute and living on the streets.
