We of different faiths are working together for the common purpose of ending homelessness in the City of Toronto and surrounding areas. With one voice we will persist in asking persons and institutions with the authority and resources, to act decisively in meeting the needs of people for decent affordable housing; in asking persons of goodwill to join their voice to ours in this common cause; and in partnering with others to improve housing conditions for people in need. Our actions are motivated and guided by our Declaration and Call to Action.
Who We Are
The MultiFaith Alliance to End Homelessness is the unified voice of members of faith communities that include Aboriginal people, Anglican, Baha'i, Baptist, Catholic, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Mennonite, Muslim, Pentecostal, Salvation Army, Tibetan Buddhist, Unitarian, and United Church, and members of like-minded community organizations.
Declaration and Call to Action
This declaration and call to action is based on our belief in the fundamental dignity and worth of every human being, and argues that the care of poor and vulnerable people of all ages is a central tenet of our respective teachings and traditions, of good government, and of responsible, compassionate citizenship.

Toronto affordable housing wait list continues to set stunning new records month after month...
Toronto’s affordable housing wait list continues to set stunning new records month after month. The list stands at an all-time high of 83,681 households in March – up a staggering 7% in the past year. The March number beat the previous record set in February, and that beat the previous record set in January. The wait list has set new records every month since before the recession in late 2008. The wait list numbers underline the urgent shortage in affordable housing in Toronto, and also reinforce the message that Toronto Community Housing Corporation – the city’s affordable housing agency – needs to preserve and protect all of its homes, rather than moving forward with a plan for a massive sell-off of affordable homes.
