Community Partners

We partner with agencies who provide information, resources, services, programs and projects that help people move from homelessness to homes, and that assist people who are at risk of losing their housing to stay housed and avoid the path to homelessness. 

To date, Raising the Roof has allocated close to $4 million in grants to the following organizations for their continued work with the homeless:

Child & Family Initiative Community Partners

Our four-year national Child and Family Homelessness Initiative is focused on finding solutions to this serious issue.  We believe it is important to understand the issue globally and nationally – but also at the local level.  We are very happy to have enlisted the help of these eight, innovative community agencies/organizations who will bring valuable, diverse perspectives to our work.

Youthworks Community Partners

As part of Raising the Roof’s Private Sector Engagement Project we have partnered with four innovative employment / skills training programs for homeless and at-risk youth across Canada. These four community agencies are utilizing the findings and recommendations from Raising the Roof’s report It’s Everybody’s business: Engaging the Private Sector in Solutions to Youth Homelessness to enhance the strategic approach used when engaging local businesses/corporations to provide employment opportunities for at-risk and homeless youth.
