At Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH), we leverage Canada’s affinity for hockey to raise awareness and financial support for the homeless through education, fundraising, and by partnering with solutions-based local homeless support agencies.
We believe that every Canadian should have a safe place to call home and the supports that they need to thrive. To ensure all homeless and at-risk Canadians have a fighting chance, we host Pro-Am and Collegiate hockey tournaments across Canada where players raise funds to make a direct impact in their own community.
HHTH is a not-for-profit hockey charity with over 20,000 donors, 3,000 players, and 1,000 volunteers that participates annually, and together, we “play with purpose.” 100% of net proceeds stay local in the city that we have our tournaments in and with your support, we are able to partner with over 45 local homeless support agencies across Canada. Since 1996, HHTH has granted over $19 million to face-off against homelessness.
Hockey Helps the Homeless focuses on two main categories to assist our partners: housing projects and supports. Housing projects include emergency housing, renovations, furnishing, and men, women, youth & family shelters. Supports for clients include recreation, health & wellness, staff support, meals, mental health services, addiction services, storage, transportation, education, outreach, and skills building. With HHTH’s help over the years, hockey has brought together passionate leaders in the community who are dedicated to shutting out homelessness.
