Ottawa and Canada are Facing a National Homelessness Crisis

Homelessness is a growing problem in Canada. As successive governments have reduced social service spending throughout the country, more and more Canadians have found themselves on the streets. There are as many reasons for being homeless as there are homeless people, however, mental illness and addictions are certainly two factors.

The people are the brothers and sisters and parents who become detached from or burn bridges with their family systems and eventually have nowhere left to go except to the street.
