Women’s homelessness is a crisis in Canada. Women, girls, and gender diverse peoples experience some of the most severe forms of housing need. Keepers of the Circle and the Women’s National Housing & Homelessness Network (WNHHN) work in partnership to advocate for political action to eliminate homelessness and housing insecurity for women, girls, and gender-diverse people across Canada.
The WNHHN is Canada’s leading national organization working to homelessness and housing insecurity for women, girls, and gender-diverse people across Canada through research, policy advocacy, community engagement, human rights work, and strategic litigation. The WNHHN is comprised of over 1000 members, organizations, and agencies from across Canada with diverse expertise, including leading academics, individuals with lived/living experience of homelessness, social service providers, human rights experts, grassroots activists, and community-based organization.
The WNHHN invites all women-identified and gender-diverse people to join the network and get involved in driving political change. Through the WNHHN, members can become involved in local and national research, policy, advocacy, training, and cross-country collaboration.
