Anyone can be homeless which is why it is so important for all of us to do what we can to help. We focus on helping the homeless community with empathy, love, respect and support without judgement. Each week we give nutritional meals, clothing or other items when available and provide groceries through the support of generous donors like you, community partners (Durham Community Actions Group, Durham Alliance Outreach, Circle of Love Ministry) and busniess' working together.
Magnus was homeless, he was one of the homeless individuals we brought food who lived in his car in the Town of Ajax. He was removed from his car by emergency crews, taken to the hospital for care where he went into a coma. Carion was present with his family when Magnus was taken off life support as they listened to Magnus' favourite song dreamer by Oxy Osbourne when he took his last breath. We had a candle light vigil for Magnus with his friends and family who came from out of the country. Magnus was taken back home wiht his family in Iceland where he was laid to rest beside his father. Rest in peace and love Magnus.
While dropping off food for our homeless community. Jason said, Carion it was my birthday yesterday, I turned 30 years old. Carion said, oh yeah, why didn't you tell me, I would have brought you cake and pizza for us to celebrate. 2 Days later, Carion and Eithan returned to the Respite parking lot with a birthday cake with Jason's name, candles, a card, chocolate and pizza for everyone and we celebrated Jason's birthday on top of Carion's car in the parking lot, showing Jason that we love him and he is important to us. His birthday was important to him, us and we wanted Jason to know that we love him.
For Christmas 2022, Elizabeth Leyland a young lady diagnosed with Autism prepared a letter with the help of her mother Lynne Leyland, took the letter to businesses, friends and neighbours asking for domation of essential items for the homeless community. Elizabeth was able to put together 20 bags, which was given to our organzation to help the Homeless in Ajax. We delivered the bags to the unsheltered, those in the Shelter and Respite. Thank you to Elizabeth and Lynne Leyland for their amazing gift and contributions. A prime example demonstrating that we all share the responsibility of doing what we can to help if possible and a reminder of the importance of helping each other.

An Ontario judge has denied a municipality’s request to clear a homeless encampment, building on decisions out of British Columbia that he says establish a constitutional right for a person to shelter themselves if accessible indoor spaces aren't available.
The Region of Waterloo had asked the court to find that roughly 50 people living in a Kitchener, Ont., encampment were in violation of its trespassing bylaw. But in a ruling handed down Friday in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the judge found the bylaw violates the Charter rights of the encampment residents because of the region’s lack of adequate shelter spaces.
Homeless mother told her story of how her son's ashes where bulldozered by the Town.
RIP Baby Boy. On the morning of the first 2022 Election debate, the Mayor of #townofajax, Shaun Collier bulldozered what little the homeless had but also took the ashes of a homeless woman's son. We should be better than this as a community.
The mother who loss the Ashes of her dead son, told her the story of the day her belongings where bulldozers by Town of Ajax & confirmed that Mayor Shaun Collier was present, how she tried to save her son's ashes and what happened in her own words.
Karl was staying at a shelter in the Town of Ajax when he was kick out. Karl reported that after expressing his opinion, he was then kicked out, he was very upset that his voice did not matter and felt disrespected. Many of Karl's Causation friends expressed to us that Karl was facing racism. Carion watched his health declining as she reached out to many organizations for help but no help was available but she kept trying. She begged the shelter to meet with her to work out a path to get Karl inside but management said no, he's not coming back. Scared, illucinating and having Seizures. Karl ended up having a major seizure which an ambulance had to be called. Kyle & Christina saved his life. Carion was able to utilize her experience in Hospital Care & Governance to ahve Karl stay in the Hospital until she was able to figure out a pathway forward with Karl and ensuring that he has support in place. Karl was then hospitalize until our team was able to reunite him with his mother and now Karl is living in his new home. All things are possible when your see the person. Together We Are Stronger®.
We are calling on Town of Ajax Council, to create an area in Ajax, which isn't inconveniencing the Ajax Community. Where the homeless can stay, because they are moving from one location to the other on the streets of Ajax. Provide a location that won't impact residents. It's best to get the Homeless off the streets but until then, provide one location that won't impact the community for them to live if the shelter is full.
If you have food or clothing (new, lightly used and clean) that you would like to donate, please email email@example.com
Every life matters and its important that we do what we can to help . Nothing like a warm home cook meal served with love.
Carion Fenn Foundation, Circle of Love Ministry have joined together to feed our homeless on the streets of Ajax.
