Starts With Home is a coalition of people, organizations, businesses, and community groups joining together to build public and political support to end homelessness and housing need in Ottawa. 

Our platform was developed by over 40 housing experts and community partners and supported by the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa. We are calling on people and organizations from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to join together to make sure every person has a place to live.
