Haven Toronto is a sanctuary for elder men impacted by poverty, homelessness and social isolation. The agency is the only organization in Canada dedicated to serving elder men age 50 and over. We have thousands of clients, see between 250 and 400 clients a day and receive 300 to 400 new clients a year. Approximately 30% of our clients are over the age of 60, 80% are homeless and 100% are food insecure.
Haven Toronto is a registered charity. First opened in 1933, Haven Toronto provides crisis and housing support, access to nurses and barbers, healthy nutritious meals, emergency clothing, showers, laundry and more.
Open 365 days a year, from 8am to 5pm, Haven Toronto affords clients a safe space where they can form and cultivate friendships, become part of a community, and have the opportunity to live a quality, dignified life.
Our vision is a safe and just community in which elder homeless men have the opportunity to live a quality, dignified life. Our mission is to be a national leader in services, programs and advocacy for elder homeless men.
