Community Action on Homelessness

Homelessness is not an issue that has been left for major cities and it is increasing in Cape Breton. There is a great misconception that we do not have homelessness in our community - because we cannot see them.on park benches or on the streets. This is why they are called the 'hidden homeless'.

There is a solid chance that you know someone who is living with friends or family or in other circumstances where they are not living in their own home.

Community Action on Homelessness works with community in identifying solution to homelessness and developing affordable and safe housing strategies. We envision the Cape Breton Regional Municipality as a healthy community for all people to live.

“Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for Everyone in our community as homelessness and risk of homelessness is prevented and reduced.”
