Our Vision Statements

To empower individuals to live their best lives. Encouraging self-determined goals fosters a life that is meaningful to the individual. Long lasting change is rooted in autonomy.

To safely house and advocate for those without a secure and stable home. Housing needs to be seen as a right and not a privilege. No one should be without a home. Everyone has a right to housing.

To promote the development of affordable and accessible housing in St. John’s. A home should not be cost-prohibitive. Complex populations require affordable and dignified housing options.

To prioritize ending homelessness as a shared goal alongside community partners, and to foster deeply rooted change through a network of meaningful support. This is a problem that requires networking, flexibility, and attention from numerous sectors and organizations.
