Housing and Homeless Supports

Shelters

Based on the premise that we can do more together than we can do apart, Toronto Housing & Homeless Supports integrates all six Salvation Army shelters in Toronto and Booth Supportive Services under one management structure. We coordinate:

2 women’s shelters
3 men’s shelters
1 co-ed senior’s shelter
1 concurrent disorder support team
1 social enterprise training ground
1 primary support unit
1 street outreach team
2 drop-in spaces
extensive follow-up supports
transitioning 300-400 shelter residents to affordable housing every year
715+ beds per night in total

Five Shelters

Our logo shows our history, originally 5 separate shelters, Hope Shelter, The Gateway, Florence Booth House, Evangeline Residence, and Maxwell Meighen Centre, which integrated into Toronto Housing & Homeless Supports (THHS) in 2014. In April 2015, Hope Shelter closed its doors at College and McCaul following the landlord’s sale of the building. After a long search for a new property, The Salvation Army opened New Hope Leslieville in January 2018. Booth Supportive Services also integrated with THHS in late 2016, providing wrap-around community support for those with concurrent disorders. In December 2018, we continued to expand with the opening of Islington Senior’s Shelter. Just like our constantly changing city our buildings and services may change, but our vision and journey towards H.O.M.E. remains the same.
