Toronto’s homeless shelter system is bursting at the seams. This is a city that drips with wealth yet abandons homeless people to die on the streets or face conditions of brutal overcrowding that denies them basic dignity and jeopardizes their health.
All summer long homeless shelters have been packed, and now as we head into winter, there is real risk that even survival spaces like the Warming Centres and Out of the Cold facilities won’t be able to handle the overflow.
The City must stop cutting shelter beds in the central core, and open new space now if are to avoid tragedies this winter.
Join us for a rally & march to make sure the City opens desperately needed shelter space now.
