Make a Difference

Help us end youth homelessness.

Home Depot volunteers painting a wall

Since 2009, The Home Depot Canada Foundation has helped improve hundreds of homes and communities across Canada because we believe that good neighbours make great neighbourhoods.

Our primary focus is to support housing initiatives that benefit Canadian youth because safe, stable, affordable housing matters.  It is the cornerstone of vibrant, strong communities and is directly linked to helping youth realize their full potential and build brighter futures.
