We need to address homelessness on all levels‌ Homelessness of the Body Homelessness of the Mind Homelessness of the Heart Homelessness of the Spirit Dr. Marie Wilson Truth and Reconciliation Commissioner, 2016 Canadian Conference on Ending Homelessness, London, ON


Young people navigating poverty, living homeless and on the margins have unique creativity and perspectives. Their contributions are needed to build inclusive and vibrant, culture and community.


Powerful tools giving voice and healing to those traumatized or silenced Tangible skills to manage stress and challenges Connections to 21st century learning Bridges to employment, education and networks


Illuminators of societal inequities and injustice Ways to cultivate joy, agency and strength Ways to celebrate diversity of expression, identity, experience and culture Necessary to make sense of the world we live in

The SKETCH Impact 2014-2016


There are other young people who want to learn new skills at SKETCH and carve a path for themselves out of homelessness and poverty. Folks from all walks of life come to SKETCH to be inspired, or perhaps to find freedom from depression and loneliness through expressing themselves. I really appreciate SKETCH for giving me a chance. -sketch artist

I started going to SKETCH for the food and tokens, but then started to make punk patches and fix clothes. After getting involved in screenprinting and sewing, I got a job at SKETCH, and later enrolled into the Toronto School of Art. Now I’ve graduated, and have my own studio! -SKETCH Artist

SKETCH is the best example of a community initiative that promotes increased well being, and provides the resources it does to so many youth. I really wish there were more places like SKETCH, especially in places like Scarborough. I feel like there are countless youth in our communities who would benefit from the abundance of opportunities here. -SKETCH Artist
