Streets to Homes is a Housing First program that has been operated by the city of Toronto since 2005. This strategy targets unsheltered homeless people, and provides them with government subsidized permanent housing with follow-up supports. To date, approximately 1,500 people have moved directly from living on the street into permanent housing units, and 87 percent have remained housed. Program administrators attribute the effectiveness of this program to the cooperation of community agencies and the coordination of the Shelter, Support, and Housing Administration of the City of Toronto.
