End The Stigma
R.O.C.K. feels no one should face homelessness or sustance use alone. Stigma is the #1 barrier for people seeking the support they need.
R.O.C.K. provides (w)holistic street health and drop-in services while building partnerships and capacity.
What We Do
Connecting with those experiencing homelessness or insecure housing.
We were able to open drop-in centres in Chatham & Wallaceburg.
Why We Do It
An estimated 235,000 people in Canada experienced homelessness in 2016, with roughly 35,000 people being homeless on any given night.
Almost 1 in every 5 households experience serious housing affordability issues (spending over 50% of their low income on rent) which puts them at risk of homelessness.
