Coronavirus: Toronto Deaf Houseless

Housing is a human right. Home is like social connection. Home is just more than a physical space. When someone has no home, it is commonly views as “homeless”–it is better to use this term, “houseless”–more conscious term to empower struggling people. It is important to discuss about accessibility: communication, knowledge, and information.

Toronto, Canada is very expensive to live, it is the largest city in Canada, as I learned that there is 300 Deaf houseless living on streets right now. 300. That is a big concern, no? How would the Deaf get the right to communication, knowledge, and information?

For example, money, Toronto will not accept coins or dollars because it might be infected to Coronavirus. Required to have cards instead of money (coins and dollars). How would they know? There are many examples in this social problem.

As today (Monday) the news in Toronto has shared that there were about 25 houseless turned positive to Coronavirus living in shelters, etc. How would the Deaf survive, suffer, support or empower them? Is it their fault that they do not have a home?
