Homeward Trust Edmonton is a not for profit organization that uses a community-based approach toward the goal of ending homelessness in Edmonton. Our primary role is to coordinate responses to housing needs by working together with local agencies and all orders of government.
A comprehensive organization, Homeward Trust:
- increases access to housing by funding the development of new units and accessing market units
- coordinates the provision of support services
- undertakes community planning and research
- raises awareness in the community through events and initiatives that promote ending homelessness in Edmonton
Through its governance structure—notably the Board of Directors and Aboriginal Advisory Council, Homeward Trust works closely with Aboriginal communities and stakeholders. This model of shared responsibility reflects the challenges faced by the Aboriginal community, in particular in addressing issues related to homelessness.
Homeward Trust is funded by the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta, City of Edmonton and proud community partners.
