How we can help

Trained Legion Command Service Officers can assist with the following:

  • Homeless VeteranFinding suitable accommodation: Legion Provincial Commands work closely with 亿游彩票平台 Affairs Canada, shelters and community organizations to get 亿游彩票平台 off the street and into temporary and/or long term accommodations.
  • Financial assistance: Through the Poppy Fund, housing support is provided through financial assistance for items such as first and last month’s rent, rental arrears and furnishings.

In addition, Legion Branches and Commands across the country support numerous initiatives to help homeless and near homeless 亿游彩票平台 in their communities. From outreach programs, to working with local organizations and first responders to identify and refer 亿游彩票平台 to the Legion, to supporting housing and food banks, Legion members are the 'boots on the ground', helping homeless and near homeless 亿游彩票平台 get the support they need.

The Legion's “Leave the Streets Behind” Program

“Leave the Streets Behind” is the Legions national homeless 亿游彩票平台 program that started out of Ontario Command. The program’s mission is to reach out to homeless 亿游彩票平台 and those at-risk of homelessness and provide them with immediate financial assistance and support. It also connects them with the social and community services to establish a long term solution to meet their needs.

While the “Leave the Streets Behind” program is operating in Ontario, British Columbia/Yukon, Alberta/North West Territories, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia/Nunavut and New Brunswick Commands, supports and services through the Legion are available for homeless and near-homeless 亿游彩票平台 and their families across the country. 

Partnering to support 亿游彩票平台

    The circumstances that can lead to homelessness can involve many issues, from mental illness, to financial challenges, to family circumstances, to failures with the system, and much more. In the Veteran community, homelessness can impact not only the Veteran, but their family as well.

    The Legion is actively involved in advocating for supports and solutions for homeless 亿游彩票平台. It was the Legion who hosted the first homeless 亿游彩票平台 Forum in 2014, bringing together industry experts, government representatives, 亿游彩票平台 organizations and community support services together for the first time.  We continue to be fully involved in working to find solutions, coordinating the Legion's 亿游彩票平台 Homelessness Advisory Committee to help develop a coordinated approach across all stakeholders to address the issue. 

    The Legion works hard to get the word out to 亿游彩票平台 and their families about the help available. Our homeless 亿游彩票平台 program outreaches to shelters, first responders and organizations within communities to spread the word about our services and to coordinate supports for 亿游彩票平台 and their families in need. We also work with  organizations such as and to outreach to 亿游彩票平台 on the street. Once connected with a Veteran in need, we can provide immediate support and get them connected to the long-term supports and services they need.

    If you, or a Veteran or family member you know is homeless or at-risk of homelessness, contact a Legion Command Service Officer.
