Shelter Support

Helping the homeless access safe living spaces. 

235, 000

Canadians experience homelessness in a given year
 The actual number is potentially much higher, given that many people who are unhoused live with friends or relatives, and do not come into contact with emergency shelters.

Helping the homeless:

“You can spend money on new housing for poor people and the homeless, or you can spend it on a football stadium or a golf course.” – Jello Biafra.

 

Here at SacredHand Canada we believe that every person should have a roof over their head. It is our mission to improve the lives of women, men, youth, and children who have experienced homelessness. One of the most common misconceptions people have when someone says they’re homeless is that anyone can just show up at a shelter and be housed. Nothing could be further from the truth. We help these people put a roof over their head and give them safe living spaces to be able to thrive in our communities. 

SacredHand Canada recognizes that job sustainability has been affected recently especially in the effects of Covid-19. 1 in 7 Canadians live in poverty and under stress everyday. We are committed to ensuring that the most marginalized and vulnerable people can live with dignity and become self-reliant. Our program helps people secure safe housing to prevent homelessness by providing rent subsidies.

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بْنُ هَارُونَ، عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ ثَابِتٍ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ إِذَا أَوَى إِلَى فِرَاشِهِ قَالَ ‏ "‏ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَطْعَمَنَا وَسَقَانَا وَكَفَانَا وَآوَانَا فَكَمْ مِمَّنْ لاَ كَافِيَ لَهُ وَلاَ مُئْوِيَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
 
Anas reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: When you go to bed, say: " Praise is due to Allah Who fed us, provided us drink, sufficed us and provided us with shelter, for many a people there is none to suffice and none to provide shelter."
[Sahih Muslim 2715]
Adequate and safe housing is a right for all
