More Support Needed for our
Housing Navigation Program!

AFO is currently in need of more donations to provide support to individuals with disabilities living in the homelessness system. Please help us in assisting these vulnerable members of our community in obtaining safe, market-rental housing. Being homeless is EXTREMELY dangerous for individuals with developmental disabilities, and Ability First Ottawa is working tirelessly to provide this population with the support they desperately require.
