Until All of Us are Home

No one should fight homelessness alone – especially not our Veterans.

That’s why Good Shepherd Ministries now has a Veterans Housing Navigation Team.

The team – an experienced social worker and a part-time peer support worker – can help any homeless or at-risk Veteran.

Funded for the next three years by a generous grant from the Veterans and Family Well Being Fund of Veterans Affairs Canada, the new Veterans Housing Navigation Team will continue and build on Good Shepherd’s existing services for Veterans.

“Since we started helping Veterans with the Leave the Street Behind Program in 2010, we have helped more than 250 Veterans,” said Br. David Lynch, Executive Director. “The aim of the new funding is to house 70 veterans over the next three years.”
