JANE FINCH HOUSING COALITION
On Sunday, November 22nd we are taking part in #NationalHousingDay : Toronto Day of Action. We are calling on allies to sign
our COVID-19 Response to demand housing justice for Jane-Finch residents and all low-income residents of Toronto!
The Jane-Finch Housing Coalition (JFHC) is a grassroots coalition of residents, service providers and community organizers working towards housing justice and housing equity in the Jane-Finch area, Toronto.
JFHC’s focus is to bring awareness to ongoing and emerging housing issues, educate and empower community members to exercise their housing rights, as well as encourage engagement in urban/community planning processes and housing advocacy.
We meet on a monthly basis in the Jane Finch community. Interested in attending a meeting? Contact us!
We are a proud recipient of the Toronto Foundation's 2019 Vital Signs
Grant , which recognizes 25 Toronto community leaders and organizations for their visionary work tackling inequities in the city each year.
We would also like to thank artists Phat Le , Benjamin de Boer and the Bentway for their 2020 donation, as part of an effort to support the reinvestment of artist production budgets into community initiatives and aid networks during COVID-19.
