About Homeward Trust
Homeward Trust Edmonton (HTE) is a not-for-profit organization charged with ending homelessness in Edmonton. Our efforts are guided by community needs and priorities as outlined in A Place to Call Home : Edmonton’s Updated Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
Homeward Trust has a dynamic work environment, filled with high-energy, dedicated, and passionate people who believe ending homelessness is possible.
Homeward Trust coordinates and provides resources for local efforts that address homelessness and its impacts on individuals, families, and communities.
We work with agencies, neighborhoods, mainstream systems, community members, and all orders of government in pursuit of this singular objective, grounded in the belief that we can and will end homelessness in Edmonton.
Homeward Trust is proud that our community is recognized both nationally and internationally as a leader in this work.
Homeward Trust embraces the Housing First philosophy. This philosophy follows the principles of finding housing accommodations first and then establishing the supports required by the client to remain in a home.
Homeward Trust Edmonton’s programs involve housing (such as capital project funding, property management and sourcing access to new or existing units for client use) and supportive services to individuals in or seeking access to housing programs.
