Government of Canada Awards CCMF Grant to Study Male Homelessness and Domestic Abuse

First Major Federal Grant Lends Support to Our Government of Alberta Funding Application.
But Your Patronship is the Key.

CCMF has received its first major grant from the Government of Canada. And it could not be on a more timely subject.

We have been awarded $23,511, funded by the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy, to conduct research aimed at exploring the extent to which domestic violence contributes to male homelessness.

We have commissioned an independent Research Coordinator to lead this project. The project involves conducting field work at homeless shelters and other agencies which serve the homeless population. This is our organization’s first major grant from the federal government and we are honoured by their support for this important and groundbreaking research project.

The result of this research will inform our work to open Toronto’s first Family Shelter for Abused Men and Children. Click here to support that project.

The funding also opens the door to other government grants. We are gearing up to respond to a request for proposals from the Government of Alberta’s Community Initiatives Program. Alberta will match funds raised through other means, so please become a Patron today.
