Aperçu

Home Horizon, is a local not for profit charity helping vulnerable people re-establish their lives. Since we opened in October of 2006, 110 families (with 139 children) have lived in Home Horizon housing units while working with counsellors on individualized plans to re-establish financial, emotional and social stability in their lives. Because of the growing concern about homeless youth, in 2017 Home Horizon built the Barbara Weider House for youth which has a 6-bed capacity. Since opening in July 2017, the Barbara Weider House has been full and there has been a constant waiting list of 8 to 10 youth.  

 

The need is real!! 

Local events like Bowls for Beds” help to raise the money we need to deliver our programs.

 In preparation for the event, local school children will learn about homelessness in our community in a classroom setting and with the help of local artisans, they will create unique pottery soup bowls or cups. We have five area schools that have participated this year.  Ticket purchasers will receive a bowl or cup at the event and will sample a variety of delicious soups prepared by local chefs in the Georgian Triangle area.  We are asking you to get involved by helping to sponsor the event. A donation for our event from your organization will help ensure the success of this fundraiser for another year! 

 By sponsoring this event, you will help us meet our goal of $20,000.

 We are proud to be a part of a program which makes such an important contribution in our community.

 

We really appreciate all supporting our efforts.

À propos de cet organisme

Homelessness is a serious problem in our communities. Research shows that Youth homelessness has reached epic proportions. There are many reasons that Youth are in the situation of being homeless. This could be due to being kicked out of their home, disagreements at home, parents moving away, addictions and mental health issues, parent abandonment and having nowhere else to go. Home Horizon helps this vulnerable population to re-establish their lives through our program of transitional housing and personal support and become our future generation of strong independent individuals. Temporary Housing In our program, youth are provided temporary housing while they work on goals to help them build their future. Youth come to us with many challenges and are offered a variety of life skills, resources support, supports with new ventures and are given the chance to learn how to navigate the systems.
