Food Security and Safe Housing

Two of the most daunting global societal issues, are food security and the need for safe housing. The resulting instability makes it next to impossible for people and families affected to flourish – and even more so for newcomers.

By investing in organizations that address basic needs for food security, safety, and housing, we honour the dignity of all people and offer a base upon which they can breathe, plan, act, and grow.

Here are some of the organizations working towards Food Security and Safe Housing that we support.
