We continue to work to achieve real solutions for the more than 16,000 people on Toronto’s supportive housing wait list.

Houselink 2017-18 Annual
The theme of this year’s report – is IMPACT, demonstrating the gains made by people served: jobs acquired, friendships made and tenancies saved. But these are only part of the story. We know we have really had an impact when a participant says, “I love Houselink because I experience the joy of living with well-being and health.”
Houselink’s Annual Report 2012-13: Raising the Bar
See how Houselink raised the bar 2012-2013 in employment, support, housing and health. But we would also like you to know about changes that don’t make headlines, but will give Houselink and our funders new ways to learn from our participants and front-line staff.
In 2011-2012 we celebrated 35 Years of pride for our accomplishments; in our services and support and most importantly in our participants recovery.
2010- 2011 was the first full year with our new Executive Director, Brian Davis and President, Frank White. Highlights include the addition of one of our largest buildings in east Toronto! 29 more individuals can now call Houselink home.
In many ways, this year marks a significant transition in leadership and a renewal of our commitment to the basic mission of Houselink. In no way is that more true than the selection of our new Executive Director.
Recovery is about stepping out of the shadows, making a new friend, sharing a meal with a neighbour, and getting back to work. It is about something as simple yet profound as waking up in a safe, affordable place for the first time and then calling that place home indefinitely. Most importantly, no matter how Recovery is defined, for each person, Recovery is a personal journey.
When you meet the people next door for the first time it’s almost never what you expect. That has certainly been the experience of Houselink and its participants for over 30 years.
This year we celebrate Houselink’s 30th anniversary. As with most anniversaries, it is a time to reflect on all that has come before and contemplate all that we aspire to do in the years ahead. It is a time to remember, celebrate and look towards our future.
