This week, we proudly recognize our Housing Services staff for Emergency Shelter and Homelessness Service Workers Appreciation Week. Their dedicated efforts make possible the provision of shelter, meals and wrap around supports to roughly 500 individuals every night, every year.
As organizations working closely with people experiencing poverty, housing precarity and homelessness, we would like to express our appreciation and support for efforts to strengthen intergovernmental collaboration to address housing affordability in Ontario, including through the provincial-municipal housing summit.
Housing is now a human right here in Canada. At Dixon Hall, it is our privilege to support people on their journeys towards housing, and we are thrilled to share we have housed 100 individuals within the first year of the pandemic.
