DTAH have been working with The Salvation Army on the revitalization of Florence Booth House, an emergency shelter for unhoused cis and trans women. The shelter provides shelter and basic needs to unhoused women in the City of Toronto, including three meals per day, a bed, clothing as available, personal hygiene products and a weekly nursing clinic.
