Canadian Legacy Project is a founding partner of the Homes For Heroes Foundation. Homes For Heroes is a national program which responds to the more than 2700 military veterans who have returned to civilian life and now face crisis. These veterans are experiencing personal struggles, which result in inability to meet their basic needs of support and shelter. Homes For Heroes helps these individuals progress towards a stable and secure life by providing housing and a robust support system, fundamental components of stability and dignity. The Homes For Heroes program is a micro community of 15 to 20 tiny homes to be built in all major cities across Canada. The program provides our homeless veterans with a wide variety of health, education, socials services, and employment initiatives. The goals of the program is not only to provide a home but to help transition the tenants back to mainstream society.
Canadian Legacy Project has partnered with VETS Canada to provide funding for an emergency shelter program. Working within the community, VETS Canada members attempt to move veterans from the streets or shelters into affordable housing. They also connect the veterans with needed health care, help them access benefits and services from other organizations, and support them in finding suitable employment. The volunteers stick with these veterans every step of the way and do everything possible to help them re-establish themselves. VETS Canada is federally registered non-profit charity that has a network of 135,000 and hundreds of dedicated volunteers across the country, most of who are ex-military/RCMP. They work within the community to identify homeless veterans and quickly re-establish the bond of trust that exists between soldiers.
