Homes For Heroes Foundation is an initiative that addresses the issue of veterans experiencing homelessness in Canada.

Homes For Heroes Foundation


Homes For Heroes Foundation was developed in response to the growing number of Canada’s Veterans who are facing crisis as they return to civilian life and, as a result, find themselves on the path to homelessness.

For one out of every four Canadian Forces members, the process of being released from their military career and transitioning back into the community can be stressful and complex.  Due to the challenges they face in making this transition, Veterans are twice as likely as non-veterans to experience homelessness – and female Veterans are twice as likely as their male counterparts to be homeless.  In its May 2019 report on Moving Toward Ending Homelessness Among Veterans, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs concluded that up to 5,000 Veterans are likely to be homeless across Canada.

Our mission is to provide a caring and comprehensive solution to homelessness among our Veterans. We’re not just about building villages – we’re passionate about transforming the lives of our Veterans who bravely served our country and now need a helping hand. Thanks to supporters from across the country, in just our first few years we have built 3 villages with one more under construction, each one staffed with two social workers. We’ve created 20,075 bed nights per year and achieved an 87% program success rate with our first village residents.

We now are operating Veteran villages in Calgary, Edmonton, and Kingston with plans for Winnipeg underway. Our bold expansion plans include locations from coast to coast, across Canada.

Together, we will get our Veterans off the street; we will help them deal with the devils that haunt them; we will restore their pride, dignity and self-respect; and, we will welcome our Veteran brothers and sisters back into our society as proud and productive citizens.

Together we will end homelessness among Canada’s Veterans.
