Outreach Initiative

The  Mississauga Library received a generous donation from the P. and L. Odette Charitable Foundation for $390,000 in support of its homelessness initiative the  Open Window Hub
T he pilot project helps homeless, at-risk individuals and vulnerable youth and adults in Mississauga. The program connects them with resources, outreach programs and better access to services to help raise their quality of life. Over the span of three years, the Library will receive $130,000 per year to support the program.

The Foundation chose the
Open Window Hub for its donation after learning about the work of the initiative from the City's Homelessness Prevention Outreach Worker, Kevin Berry.
"Open Window Hub addresses the growing needs of individuals experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness, in Mississauga. There has been an increase in individuals connecting with services, so we know there is a direct need for it," said Lori Kelly, Director, Library Services. "Libraries are evolving community spaces. The programs and services offered through the Open Window Hub are a reflection of the expanding role libraries play in providing support to customers experiencing homelessness. The work we do every day makes a difference in the lives of so many individuals. The P. and L. Odette Charitable donation will provide us with the additional funding we need to effectively explore ways to help prevent and reduce homelessness and support our most vulnerable customers."

The  Open Window Hub launched in September 2017. It was funded in part by the Government of Canada's Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS). Delivered nationally, the 
Innovative Solutions to Homelessness funding stream of HPS supports the development of innovative approaches to prevent and reduce homelessness.
