Our 24-hour Respite site is designed to be a low barrier service, providing essential supports such as bedding, nutritious meals, shower and laundry facilities for adults of all genders.

Located at 705 Progress Ave.— the Respite was implemented as an emergency measure to the GTA’s increased demand for shelter facilities. This 49-bed facility operates under the City of Toronto’s Housing, Shelter and Housing Administration support.

On-site services offered weekly include housing, an ID clinic and harm reduction. 

We do outreach and system navigation to support individuals who have multiple barriers, including homelessness, mental health challenges and addiction issues. Our team provides informal counselling and basic life skills support.

For immediate assistance, please contact our 24/7 hotline at 416 639-6766.
