Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness (TAEH)

TAEH is a community-based collective impact initiative committed to preventing and ending homelessness in Toronto. It brings together agencies, organizations and individuals representing most of Toronto’s shelters, multi-service organizations and supportive housing providers who work with people who are at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness.

TAEH is leading The Toronto Supportive Housing Growth Plan (the Growth Plan), a collective impact initiative designed to address an urgent and growing need in Toronto. One of its primary objectives is helping to achieve the City of Toronto’s target of growing Toronto’s supportive housing supply by a minimum of 18,000 homes by 2030.

We acknowledge we are on the traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. While Indigenous communities in Toronto remain strong, vibrant, and resilient, they need support to address and overcome the impact of colonialism and systemic inequalities. Furthering Indigenous reconciliation and sovereignty are integral to achieving a more fair and just society where everyone can thrive.

We aim to be an ally and to fund local Indigenous organizations.
