ADOPT-A-LOCKER AT THE INTEGRATED CARE HUB
Inspired by the 'Solidarity Locker program in Lisbon, and the 'Keepers Project' in Durham Region, the 'Adopt a Locker' program serves to provide a safe, dignified place for unhoused people to store their belongings.
Secure storage provides stability
Dignity: People can get to work, their appointments, or meet people without the need to bring all of their belongings.
Security: People can safely store their belongings without fear of theft or damage.
Autonomy: Folks can access their belongings at any time, without 'gatekeeping'.
Hope: Providing a stepping stone to stable housing.
Our goal: $100,000
We meet people where they are, without judgment, and support them to make informed choices about their own lives. Everyone has the right to full, active and healthy lives, free of discrimination.
