Committed to helping put an end to youth homelessness.
The Orange Door Project is The Home Depot Canada Foundation’s response to one of the most urgent social issues facing Canadians today – youth homelessness.
This initiative comes out of our three-year, $10-million pledge to support long-term solutions that will help to put an end to youth homelessness in Canada.
Our commitment is built on a growing understanding of the important relationship between housing and support services in helping vulnerable and homeless youth make healthy transitions to adulthood.
In collaboration with community partners, thought leaders, The Home Depot Canada’s suppliers, customers and associates we are focused on improving places through renovation and repair projects and supporting programs that give youth the resources they require to build brighter futures.
We know homelessness affects tens of thousands of young people every year, comes with extraordinarily high personal and socio-economic costs, and is under-prioritized in terms of research based policy and adequate funding. We want to change that and are committed to taking action through The Orange Door Project to bring housing and hope to homeless youth in Canada.
