There are over 300 agencies in Toronto working to end homelessness on any given day. What we’ve learned at Homeless Connect Toronto is that we can only end homelessness when we work together.
Homeless Connect Toronto is a Community Partner in the Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness (TAEH), which is a “community-based collective impact initiative that recognizes the critical importance of working in a new way towards our common vision of zero chronic and episodic homelessness in Toronto”.
ZERO TO is the Toronto Alliance’s to End Homelessness’ campaign to end chronic homelessness in our city. It is based on work being done internationally along the Built For Zero model – a set of practices and tools that support communities in redesigning their local systems to achieve and then maintain zero chronic homelessness.
