Raising the Roof was created as a result of a national consultation on homelessness conducted in 1996.
Experts from across the country expressed a need for an organization that would play a key role in facilitating shared strategies to end homelessness - strategies that would show people in tangible, practical terms what they can do in their own communities to prevent and address current problems of homelessness.
Raising the Roof is Canada's only national charity dedicated to long-term solutions to homelessness. We:
- Fund local, grassroots agencies working to alleviate homelessness in their communities;
- Build awareness among Canadians about the true nature of homelessness today and educate them about how to prevent it in the future;
- Build partnerships by giving people, corporations and organizations the opportunity to participate in solutions.
