Over 35 years of helping homeless Indigenous men find their “mino bimaadiziwin.”

In 1985, Na-Me-Res began offering emergency shelter to Toronto-based Indigenous men who were without a place to live. The 26-bed shelter grew quickly to accommodate the growing needs of the community and, as a greater understanding of the underlying reasons for Indigenous homelessness emerged, Na-Me-Res implemented support programs to address those causes.

Today, Na-Me-Res, includes a number of housing initiatives that encompass an Emergency  Shelter, Transitional, Permanent and Affordable Housing as well as a number of New Projects.

Our services have also expanded into programs that meet the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional needs of our clients wherever they are on their journey. This includes Basic Needs, Personal Development and Cultural Connection.

As we continue to grow to meet increasing needs – and as a registered charity – we rely on the generosity of the government as well as public and private donations. Find out how you can support Na-Me-Res by clicking here.
