Reaching Home Projects
As the Indigenous Community Entity for Hamilton, the Coalition of Hamilton Indigenous Leadership receives federal funding through Reaching Home: Canada's Homelessness Strategy.
Through a Call for Proposals process, CHIL allocates Reaching Home funding to local Indigenous agencies who provide programs, services, and resources to prevent and address Indigenous homelessness in our community.
