Housing Services

Working to enhance the well-being of the most vulnerable in our community

Dixon Hall’s Housing Services department has been providing shelter services for the homeless and vulnerably housed in the city of Toronto for more than two decades.

We respond to the immediate housing needs of those who require our services and we work with individuals to assist them in improving their overall quality of life.

Update:

In response to COVID-19 and its concomitant challenges, the City of Toronto has determined that it would be unsafe to run the Out of The Cold (OOTC) program as it has been done in the past, in partnership with faith-based sites across the City. As a result, beginning in August 2020, Dixon Hall was contracted to operate at the Bond Place Hotel, at 65 Dundas Street East. This large site provides services to adult couples and singles of all genders. Guests who had been residing at a Dixon Hall COVID-19 Emergency Site at 188 Carlton Street have since relocated to the Bond Place Hotel, and traditional Out of the Cold guests will be welcomed at this site beginning early November.

Invaluable support is provided to men and women in the community who are homeless or formerly homeless through assistance in preparing for housing, finding adequate housing and receiving necessary supports once housed.

Long established partnerships with housing providers in the city help ensure that the people we serve can find appropriate housing while receiving support with budgeting advice, health promotion, income maintenance, conflict resolution and eviction prevention.

A Tuesday Night Dinner and a Friday Morning Breakfast program at 58 Sumach St. aims to improve food security by providing access to healthy food in a community setting on a weekly basis. Volunteers help cook and serve food to participants.

Volunteer opportunities are available. Visit our Volunteer department for details.

Harm Reduction is a central tenet and principle that guides all of the work we do to create more opportunities for stable housing.

Our Harm Reduction workers support those in our shelters and in our housing programs by providing training, workshops, referrals and contemporary knowledge imparted in a compassionate and supportive manner.

Building on the successes of The Rooming House Project, in partnership with the City of Toronto and Toronto Community Housing, Dixon Hall will be renovating and revitalizing several Cabbagetown rooming houses to provide affordable housing options for those in need.

This initiative will restore and enhance multiple heritage units in the Cabbagetown neighbourhood. Construction is underway.

Dixon Hall hosted an open information session on October 14, 2020, to discuss the revitalization plans for several Cabbagetown Rooming Houses. To view the recorded session, click the links below:
