A homeless shelter shakes up a neighbourhood.

There are 235,000 people experiencing homelessness in Canada. It’s time to stop ignoring the issue. It’s time to stop saying “It’s not my problem”. It’s time to end homelessness.

To ignite a conversation around people’s attitude towards individuals experiencing homelessness, Raising the Roof made it appear as if a shelter would open in a neighbourhood. Within hours, the community’s message was loud and clear: We don’t want a shelter here. The truth is, neither does Raising the Roof. We want long-term solutions, including affordable housing and prevention.

To reach our goal of ending homelessness we need everyone’s help to change government policy and the way the issue is addressed. Find out more, donate or join the cause visit RaisingtheRoof.org
