Why Don’t The Homeless Just Go Home? The Top Four Reasons Why People Become Homeless

There are many reasons why people become homeless: losing your job; family break-up; family violence; mental illness; poor physical health; substance use; physical, sexual or emotional abuse – to name just a few. But, the defining reason is the loss of housing.

The Fred Victor Centre overviews the top four reasons people lose their homes in this brief online report. Thank you Fred Victor Centre for this powerful overview about the factors that contributed overwhelmingly to the current homelessness crisis in Toronto - and in many other cities and towns across Canada.
