Be the Change
You can be the change for someone experiencing homelessness in Ottawa. Your contribution will help build a future without homelessness in our city.
“You never know who you could be supporting in the future. It could be a friend or a family member. It could be you.”
— Elizabeth Manley
Wendy has been happily housed for a year.
She lives in supportive housing with her husband Kevin.
She has stopped drinking and hopes to return to nursing in some capacity.
For now, she enjoys crosswords, taking care of her neighbours and having a good “girl chat” with the staff.
Sim has been housed in supportive housing for more than five years.
He still takes an hourly pour in the Managed Alcohol Program but it no longer controls his life.
Sim is enjoying life as an elder, father and grandfather.
He spends his days playing chess, teaching Inuktitut and giving back to his community as a member of the Inuk Task Force.
Chadd is still experiencing homelessness.
His life is very precarious, but he is grateful to still have the support of his wife and daughter.
He is hopeful for brighter days ahead.
