"Our Mission is to create solutions and provide resources for the homeless across Canada. Our aim is to rebuild their minds and inspire them to follow their dreams by helping them find employment in the industry of their choice. We believe together as a community support system we can create "Heroes" in the process and help save people from a life time on the street."
Our dream is that one day there will be positive and successful solutions to homelessness altogether. There is and will never be an "end to homelessness”, as some cities have “claimed”. Those are merely cities trying to sugar coat the public and get funding. 70% of people who become homeless are technically refugees of sexual, emotional and physically abusive situations and homes. It can be a very dark place internally plagued with trauma. A place that most people are not comfortable sharing or reflecting on for closure. Instead it festers like a ghost that haunts them. Forever chasing them further and further towards the darkness. By providing fun, consistent, inspirational solutions for cases like this we can limit the length of someone being homeless and re-direct their lives, but we can not end it entirely. Unfortunately these cases will always continue
A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER
Matte Black - Founder of Heroes In Black
throughout time. Which is why we have much older homeless to begin with. After two years of living on the streets someone is 90% more likely to accept living like that for the rest of their life. This is why Heroes In Black was created in hopes to break the cycle before they experience what two years on the streets can do to them and this is what we as a country can accomplish in the next few years nationwide. If you have been looking for an organization that aims to do exactly that while involving the public in every step of the way, then join us on a mission to make this dream a national reality. It would be a pleasure to raise awareness with you, to promote our new age approach of creating solutions for youth homelessness while raising the bar and becoming the change we wish to see in the world.
