What We Do

Order from Friends Catering, learn more here

We improve the health, income and housing stability of people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Toronto; people who lost their home, their job, their family and sometimes their hope.

We help women, men, seniors, families, children and even people who can’t bear to be separated from their pets.
