A Way Home is the newly emerged national coalition to prevent, reduce and end youth homelessness in Canada.

FEATURE

Introducing A Way Home

We are excited to announce the launch of A Way Home, a new national coalition dedicated to supporting communities and governments to prevent, reduce and end youth homelessness in Canada. Founding members of the coalition include Raising the Roof, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness, the National Learning Community on Youth Homelessness (Eva's), the Canadian Housing & Renewal Association, the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness and Egale Canada, and is supported by a table of dedicated funders, including Catherine Donnelly Foundation, The Home Depot Canada Foundation and Laidlaw Foundation. 
 
A Way Home is dedicated to inspiring and facilitating change through promoting effective strategies that shift the focus from an emergency response, to promoting prevention (stopping young people from becoming homeless in the first place) and helping those who do become homeless move into housing with supports as rapidly as possible, in a safe and planned way.  

A key strength of A Way Home is that it is not just another autonomous national organization competing for resources and public attention. Rather, it is an outcome of active collaboration between a range of national partners, all of whom bring expertise, resources, national profile and members to support the work of A Way Home.

A Way Home officially launched on Thursday, October 29th at a reception in Ottawa.  Visit www.AWayHome.ca for more information about the coalition.
