Community-based Agencies Urge Council To Open Shelter Space

March, 06 2013


Thirty-four community groups, including shelter providers, drop-ins, faith-based groups, community, social service, labour, women’s, youth and seniors organizations from across Toronto have signed on to an open letter to Toronto City Council urging Council to take immediate action to save the lives of people who are homeless by opening emergency shelter space. 

"Ultimately, we need all orders of government to invest in a national long-term affordable housing strategy that ensures access to safe, decent and affordable housing for all. But today we are far from that goal, and require urgent action to respond to the critical needs of people who are homeless in our city."

Please follow the link for the full text of the letter.
