What's Up At Street Health?
Street Health is "Going Green”! As part of this campaign we would like to offer our donors the opportunity to begin receiving their Bi-Annual newsletter by email.
Our goal is to switch 30% of our donors to an E-Newsletter by the end of the year for a savings of over $2000. Any savings will go towards our much needed programs and services. Join the movement!

Compassionate health care for Toronto's homeless
Street Health nurses care for the most vulnerable people in Toronto. Homeless and under-housed people are sick more often, and have lives characterized by poor nutrition, high stress and loneliness. Many people living on the street avoid mainstream health services.
Street health nurses in Downtown Toronto are providing vital health care. Our nurses are a part of larger team offering a range of supports, from mental health care to access to health cards.
With your support, we can make it work. We envision a day when our services are not needed, but until then our fierce commitment continues.
Health Care at Street Level
Street Health is a non-profit community based agency that improves the health of homeless and under-housed people in Toronto. We offer both physical and mental health programs. Our work is focused in the neighbourhood around Dundas and Sherbourne Streets, an area with the largest concentration of homeless shelters and drop-in centres in Canada.
The people we work with have lives characterized by extreme poverty, chronic unemployment, insecurity in housing, poor nutrition, high stress and loneliness. They also have more frequent and serious illnesses, and die younger on average than the general population.
