Programs & Services : Street Survivors
The Street Survivors Follow up and Support Program has been in operation since 1998. For many years, we reached out on our own to homeless and marginalized people on the streets of downtown Toronto. Since 2007, participants are referred to us by the City of Toronto’s Streets to Homes Program (S2H) and partner agencies. We support participants in any way that will encourage them to be comfortable in their homes and in the community at large. Our team consists of two full-time Follow up Support Workers and several Peer Support Volunteers.
We are able to assist participants in many ways. Sometimes, it is as simple as providing a list of local food banks during a home visit. Frequently, we are able to help with completing Toronto Housing Connections applications, obtaining necessary identification documents or health care, supporting someone through court proceedings or assisting with welfare and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) applications.
The program operates largely out of a minivan and transportation is provided to our Participants, to appointments, moving, and other opportunities. Our support involves rent checks, orientation to housing and the neighbourhood, connection to medical, dental, Identification and legal services.
The program operates from 10am-6pm Monday through Friday. For more information, please contact Toby Mullally at 416-891-4168 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
