Starts With Home is a coalition of people, organizations, businesses, and community groups joining together to build public and political support to end homelessness and housing need in Ottawa.
Our platform was developed by over 40 housing experts and community partners and supported by the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa. We are calling on people and organizations from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to join together to make sure every person has a place to live.
The Starts With Home campaign has been endorsed by over 155 organizations so far. The variety of organizations represented shows just how important affordable housing is to our city.
When thousands of voices advocate for change, City Council has the support and evidence it needs to make those changes. Please join the movement of people and organizations in Ottawa who want to see a city where everyone has an affordable, safe place to call home.
