One of the biggest challenges for people with a history of homelessness, substance use and mental health issues is money management. The Voluntary Trustee program helps people manage their finances to ensure there is enough for rent, food and other essentials. Together with related wraparound services, the program gives people the stability they need to find new housing or remain in their homes. 

Referrals are made through community agencies or directly from the City of Toronto

Case management support in the Voluntary Trustee Program includes:

  • Harm reduction 
  • Financial literacy and budgeting assistance
  • Monthly bill and rent payment
  • Life skills education 
  • Advocacy and referrals for health issues, substance use, employment, housing, legal issues, identification, and social supports
