Our goal is to serve the homeless community by providing homeless shelters in the Ottawa region with supplies to ensure homeless individuals are protected from the COVID-19 virus. We also provide PPE to the hardworking shelter staff!
Remaining in quarantine and practicing social distancing is not easy for anyone, especially for those living in homeless shelters. We want to help by providing supplies that minimize viral spread in homeless shelters.
We are currently partnered with seven shelters in the Ottawa region.
Carling Family Shelter
Cornerstone Housing for Women
Shepherds of Good Hope
Interval House of Ottawa
Youth Services Bureau
We are currently working on partnering with more shelters in the Ottawa region and the GTA.
We have officially launched the Goodwill Internships Program, allowing youth from around Canada to get involved in the fight against COVID-19 among the most vulnerable populations through 3-week remote internships!
Applications for the first round of internships are now closed, but applications for the second round of internships will be released soon!
