Dixon Hall Housing Services Supporting Clients at Bond Place Hotel

According to the 2018 Street Needs Assessment, there are nearly 9,000 individuals experiencing homelessness in Toronto every night. In an effort to combat this crisis, worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dixon Hall has joined with the City to operate additional locations and services for clients in need of shelter and housing supports.

In addition to the three housing sites we had been operating – Schoolhouse Shelter on George Street, Heyworth House Shelter on the Danforth, and a 24-hour emergency respite on Lake Shore – Dixon Hall has taken on the operation of four additional sites to enable physical distancing for clients during the pandemic. Dixon Hall now operates a temporary Respite Service at 354 George Street, as well as operating at both the Strathcona and Victoria Hotels.

On August 21, Dixon Hall began operations at the Bond Place Hotel, at 65 Dundas Street East. The new accommodation provides services to adult couples

Neighbours Helping Neighbours

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on Dixon Hall and the many community agencies we work with in the city. No one could have imagined the health crises, the economic turmoil, the stress placed on systems across the city and beyond. And, yet, through this dark time, moments of light and warmth have shone through.
