Emergency Housing in Halton
Home Suite Hope is not an emergency shelter facility. We do support single-parent families facing homelessness, but we are second stage housing. If you have absolutely no place to stay, an emergency shelter may be a short-term solution to your immediate housing crisis.
Emergency Shelter Options in Halton Region
Halton Region Emergency Shelter Program
The Emergency Shelter Program may provide temporary crisis accommodations to Halton Region residents who are homeless and need emergency shelter that cannot be met through personal resources (financial, family and friends, available professional resources, etc.).
If you require emergency shelter call Access Halton at 905-825-6000 (or dial 311), press “0” to speak to an operator and tell the operator that you need emergency shelter.
The operator will connect you to an Emergency Shelter Case Worker who will assess your situation and help you determine the best course of action to regain your housing stability.
