Homes First Society

Homes First Society is a Toronto-based housing and shelter provider, which currently owns and/or manages seven emergency shelters, three hotel shelter programs and 14 housing sites, providing a home and support to more than 1,400 seniors, families, and single adults every single night.

Starting in 2018, Homes First teamed up with Street to Trail, a local organization that strives to decrease barriers for marginalized adults in Toronto by increasing their accessibility to nature. Every month, residents would come together for a hiking trip outside of the city. Each trip offers a new experience in a provincial park or conservation area and a chance to escape the hustle and noise of the city and reconnect with nature.
