Thank you to our event partners who most generously and creatively worked on this event:
After a long, difficult few months, Home Horizon is opening up and now able to offer support to our clients with our community partners. We are welcoming back our art therapist, Annhori Clifford. And thanks to our generous donors, our Barbara Weider House now has outside furniture and a bbq; allowing us more time outside to reduce the likelihood of COVID exposure.
Fundraising in the new world
The pandemic has non-profit organizations cancelling fundraising events and scrambling for new ways to raise funds… and we are no different. Our revenue shortfalls has our fundraising committee working hard to find new and creative ways to engage our community and to ignite people’s interest in supporting our youth.

Preventive Measures are Working
As of July 27th, we are pleased to report that our COVID-19 pandemic preventative measures are working. We are grateful that our residents and staff are all well and safe. We are being especially careful given our communal setting and we are doing our best to keep them physically, socially, and mentally nourished. We are proud of our residents and frontline staff for their courage, patience and resilience. We are also incredibly grateful for our community who has shown incredible generosity during this difficult time. Thank you for thinking of us.
Need Help Now?
The goal of Home Horizon is to transform the lives of homeless youth by offering essential supports, counseling, and housing.
Our Mission at Work:
The Barbara Weider House
currently houses 7 youths as well as:
- 24-hour supervision
- Counselling, education and job support
- Life skills workshops
Our focus is to provide an umbrella of prevention and programs that will effectively help our clients build new life skills and in turn, give them the tools and capabilities they need to move forward. We want to ensure they never face the prospect of homelessness again.
Consider a contribution to give homeless youth hope
& an opportunity to succeed.
