Homelessness is a wide-spread problem which can lead to high vulnerability and social exclusion. There are many reasons why a person may become homeless, with relationship breakdown being reported as a common cause. Homeless people often encounter a number of other problems such as mental and physical health issues and problems with drugs and alcohol which might represent either a cause or an effect of homelessness. A compassionate approach towards the homeless is crucial, whether this be explicit in taking action to deal with basic needs, or implicit with more of a "human connection" approach in encouraging motivation and independence to help people re-build their lives.
For a homeless person, social and emotional support, a sense of belonging, trust, assistance with daily living, help to re-build their lives, and assistance with primary/secondary/mental health care access, may all represent important issues, in addition to the importance of shelter and longer term permanent housing. Becoming homeless is likely to be one of the most stressful and frightening events that can happen to a person, and finding shelter or knowing who to approach to assist with this, might be difficult. In assisting with finding shelter for the homeless in and around Toronto.Public policy or the lack of public policy, that increasingly excludes low-income people from large chunks of the city. 

I would personally like to see that everyone — politicians, public officials and the public — sees housing through a human rights lens. We know what that looks like when it comes to access to clean water. We need a shared understanding of what that looks like in housing.  

My personal hope is that we "Achieve things we never imagined! "

Heartfelt Thanks you to all,

Irena Simanavicius
