Join us for Share the Love – one special night to learn and engage with people like you who care, and want to make our city a place where everyone has a home.
There are 10,000+ people who are homeless in Toronto. The economic impact of the pandemic will push even more people into poverty, while housing and food prices continue to soar.
During the coldest month of the year, people experiencing homelessness will need our support more than ever. Let’s share some love for our city and for everyone who lives here.

A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE
Fred Victor supports people experiencing homelessness to find and secure a safe place to live. We do this by offering a continuum of housing solutions that includes immediate shelter, transitional and supported housing and long-term affordable housing.
We provide emergency shelter every night for hundreds of homeless and low-income people at 4 locations across Toronto. In 2021, more than 150 people staying in our shelters moved on to improved living conditions after receiving support in our shelters.
HOUSING FOR A YEAR
Our transitional housing supports people who have histories of chronic homelessness, addiction, or periods of incarceration. For up to one year, residents receive intensive support for daily living from our staff in preparation for moving into permanent housing.
Fred Victor’s permanent housing provides safe and affordable accommodations to individuals and families. On-site staff run programs, connect residents to other support services, and help people successfully integrate into the local community.
