Many of us dreamed of becoming professional hockey players when we were kids. Hockey Helps the Homeless tournaments are designed to let you realize that dream by treating you like a pro for a day. Over a hundred former NHL players have played in our tournaments over the past 17 years including greats like Mike Gartner, Laurie Boschman, Vincent Damphousse, Theo Fleury and Kirk McLean. No details will be spared in making this an absolutely unforgettable experience:
Today, it is estimated that there are between 150,000 and 300,000 homeless people in Canada, with children and young families making up the fastest growing segment of the homeless population -- despite the fact that Canada ranks as one of the top 20 wealthiest nations in the world.
If you want to learn more about the homeless situation in your community, we encourage you to check out the websites of our Outreach Partners or make arrangements to visit and volunteer at a local homeless shelter.
