What We Do
Raising the Roof provides strong and effective national leadership on long-term solutions to homelessness through partnership and collaboration with diverse stakeholders, investment in local communities, and public education.
All members of Canadian society have access to a safe and stable home, together with the supports they need to achieve their potential.
These four core values represent our commitment to the individuals, groups and organizations with whom we interact in the course of our work, each and every day.
1. Respect and Dignity
We believe that everyone has the right to be met with compassion, accepted without discrimination, and treated with respect and dignity.
2. Diversity and Inclusion
We embrace diversity and inclusion, encouraging everyone to contribute to solutions to homelessness in positive and meaningful ways.
3. Partnership and Collaboration
We believe that we can accomplish more when we work in partnership and collaboration, sharing knowledge, expertise and resources.
We are ethical and accountable in our decision-making, open and honest in our communications.
Since 1997, Raising the Roof has allocated close to $3.3 million dollars to more than 145 partner agencies across Canada working to reduce homelessness at the community level.
By taking action and working together we can provide real solutions and help end the terrible crisis of homelessness in Canada.
