Summer housing and homeless support
Together with our partners we’re offering help to our vulnerable communities during the warmer months
In Peel there are many programs available to support housing, shelter and fundamental needs.
Offering 24/7 support for urgent homelessness needs, food, shelter access, referrals and more. The Street Helpline connects to our mobile Street Outreach team who can often come to your location to help. If you’re in crisis or face an urgent need, call us.
We can help you find the best option in any Peel shelter, including in adult, youth, and family shelters. There are dedicated spaces for men and women.
