Ottawa Needs Your Help.
We are urging our next City Council to take concrete action to solve the housing affordability crisis in our community. And here's how you can help.
1. LEARN ABOUT THE SOLUTIONS
It doesn’t have to be this way. There are concrete actions City Council can take to prevent, reduce, and end homelessness by addressing the housing affordability crisis in Ottawa.
2. ENDORSE THE CAMPAIGN
With a strong coalition of voices and cross-sector collaboration, we can make a change. Endorse the Starts With Home platform so that we can show municipal candidates how important this issue is to our city.
3. SPREAD THE WORD
Invite others to join the Starts With Home movement. Tell everyone you know about it using these resources, so that we can enter the October 24th municipal election informed and ready. Together we can make sure Ottawa remains a safe and affordable place for everyone.
Become a #StartsWithHome Champion by helping us with events, making phone calls, and postering the city with our shared message: Together, we can end homelessness in Ottawa!
5. WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVES
Make sure your candidates hear from you! Conversation is a key part of change-making. Send a letter or tag them in your posts, using our templates and #StartsWithHome.
