"MTH has brought back the light of inspiration to me"

This is the inspiration message from a Milton Mom, reported in the Milton Canadian Champion. The Mom attributes getting herself and son back on their feet to Milton Transitional Housing.

The story by Julie Slack, a reporter at the Milton Canadian Champion, is so incredibly uplifting to all those with the foresight and passion to establish Milton Transitional Housing. It makes all the hard work worthwhile and all those involved, those who have volunteered and supported in any way should feel very proud ...and perhaps a little tearful.

Read the Kathy's story here.

Thank you to Kathy, Julie, Donna for bringing us this moving piece and inspiring message.

The Canadian Champion story also presents facts about homelessness in Milton and encourages us to participate in the amazing Coldest Night of the Year walk on Saturday February 20th.

Medium article - Do we have too many homeless charities?

Can we have too many organisations in Canada supporting those at risk of homelessness?

Here is a link to my reflections form the last 7 years. Contentious. Maybe.

I talk about Milton Transitional Housing, Coldest Night, Empty Bowls and Homeless Hub.

"In these last 7 years my perspective is shifting. Have we ended up with so many homelessness groups because of a lack of ownership at a Federal, Provincial or Regional governmental level? I am coming round to the perspective that rather than replicate new charities across multiple communities, that we actually need to push towards a singular voice and collaborate in new ways."
