At Port Cares we urge you to join us in the fight to combat homelessness in our community. Did you know that:
- Families with kids are the fastest-growing group in the homeless population?
- 1/3 of homeless individuals have some form of mental health issue?
- The average life expectancy of a homeless person in Canada is 39?
- 20% of Canada’s homeless are young people ages 16-24?
Shocking isn’t it? Help us at Port Cares by donating at our Raising the Roof Pancake Brunch on February 3rd at 61 Nickel Street from 11:30 am to 1 pm. Please buy some socks or a toque to donate to the Raising the Roof campaign to end homelessness. To learn more follow these links:
