The issue of homelessness among Canadian Armed Forces veterans is an area of increasing concern. Unfortunately over 2,500 Canadian veterans are experiencing homelessness and have not been successful in transitioning from their military career to healthy and productive civilian lives. The majority of these veterans are unemployed and many are trying to deal with mental and physical injuries related to their years of service.
The Homes For Heroes Foundation is an initiative that addresses the issue of veterans experiencing homelessness in Canada. Homes For Heroes has been designed to help those who were willing to give their all to protect us and maintain our freedoms, get back to a place where they feel supported and engaged.
