To educate, advocate and demonstrate that society can be greatly improved and made safer by investing in lasting solutions to poverty and the many other issues facing people with social disadvantages, partly by placing a strong emphasis on harm reduction.
Harm Reduction Community Response (HRCR)
was founded in response to a protest against the Roehampton Hotel, a shelter facility established by the City of Toronto in Midtown Toronto. HRCR staged a successful counter protest in Midtown on August 15, 2020, coverage of which has informed the conversations Torontonians and Canadians are having about people with social disadvantages in our society.
The Board of HRCR is made up of professionals and people with lived experience dealing with issues related to poverty, oppression, and social disadvantage. We are proud to represent the various communities often affected by such issues.
Your support and contributions will enable us to pay for events, food and PPE for people experiencing homelessness in the streets, shelters or encampments. Your generous contributions will help fund our mission and operational cost.
