Home Depot Canada Foundation

Make a Difference

Help us end youth homelessness.

Together, we can give our youth the opportunity to realize a brighter future.

 

Giving back is a core value at The Home Depot and is a passion for our associates.

Through Team Depot, our associate-led volunteer program, The Home Depot associates are encouraged and empowered to take a leadership role in the community.

From updating a youth shelter with a fresh coat of paint to improving storage solutions at a local transitional home to enhancing outdoor spaces, our associates work with local charities to improve the homes and lives of thousands of deserving Canadians in need.

Annually, The Home Depot associates contribute more than 60,000 volunteer hours to community projects across Canada. In 2016 Team Depot associates across Canada worked with a variety of community partners to complete more than 263 projects.

Check out our associates in action on our success stories, photo and video gallery pages.

Two-Day Community Project to be held at Dans la rue this September

Since 1988, Dans la rue has offered a variety of programs and services to over 1,000 homeless and at-risk youth ages 12-25 in Montreal each year. Their goal is to respond to the youths immediate needs and provide them with the tools they need to facilitate their transition away from life on the street and towards a more independent future.

Dan la rue’s apartment complex opened in 2014 and provides supportive, long-term transitional housing to 15 youth and 2 young families who use or have used Dans la rue's other reintegration services including their alternative high school and various employment programs.  

Dans la rue is a Home Depot Canada Foundation regional partner.  In 2015 Team Depot completed a large community build in one of Dan la rue’s resource centres.  This September approximately 20-30 Associates from Quebec stores will return for a two-day project.  Associate volunteers will be painting all interior spaces on the three floors of the apartment complex including common areas, hallways, and stairways.
