Our Vision

A community that empowers change.

Our Mission

To partner with the individuals and families we serve to make a meaningful SHIFT in their circumstances.

Our Values

We believe that homelessness and food insecurity are crises that a person is experiencing; and that this experience does not define a person.  We embrace the values of respect, diversity and inclusion, education and prevention, empowerment, teamwork and collaboration and are committed to being housing-focused and client-centered. 

Land acknowledgement

S.H.I.F.T acknowledges that we are situated on the traditional land of the Anishnaabeg people. The Anishnaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. We are dedicated to honouring Indigenous history and culture and committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nation, Métis and Inuit people.
