According to Toronto Public Health (TPH), close to 100 people struggling with homelessness died in Toronto in 2017. On average, that’s close to two deaths a week. Over the past couple of years, homelessness has become a serious issue, especially in our winter months when sleeping rough can become fatal.
While shelters are doing their best to meet demand, they are often overcrowded and strain to accommodate the amount of people wanting to use their services.
To help alleviate this issue, Humanity First is launching its Humanity First Shelter Bus project. The Shelter Bus will be a repurposed coach bus, optimized to provide a safe, comfortable place to sleep overnight. It will be outfitted with 20 beds, a kitchenette, lounge space, bathrooms and wifi.
