Housing Stabilization Fund Casework Victory!

Last week we called for an emergency phone/email/tweet action in support of Adam. Adam had had bedbugs and was denied the Housing Stabilization Fund because he had gotten funds within the last two years. Adam has chronic leg and back pain and is recovering from shoulder surgery. Nevertheless, Toronto Employment and Social Services refused to accommodate him as a disabled person and said he had to keep sleeping on his concrete floor until at least October.

Instead, Adam called OCAP. The cheque for the maximum amount for soft furniture under the Housing Stabilization Fund policy is in the mail!

Thanks to everyone who took a couple of minutes to make this happen. Direct action gets the goods!
