About us

Who we are

Fix the 6ix is a volunteer committee trusteed by West Neighbourhood House, a United Way agency. Fix the 6ix was launched by Deanna Lentini at York University in 2016. Fix the 6ix exists to support the individuals in our community experiencing homelessness and the organizations that advocate for them. Our two areas of focus are the ReGiftcard program and Humanizing Homelessness.



Fix the 6ix exists to support individuals experiencing homelessness, and the organizations that advocate for them. Our goal is to provide a way to humanize the homeless community by sharing their stories to broaden the understanding of homelessness in Toronto.

We do this in three ways:
• Re-purposing donated gift cards to provide goods and programming to shelters
• Donating gift cards to individuals on the street
• Humanizing homelessness by sharing the stories of those we serve


• To alleviate internal pressure on Toronto homeless shelters by subsidizing programming
• Giving in-kind donation to individuals on the street that offer the power of choice
• To offer visibility and inspire a new understanding of the homeless community in Toronto


The beliefs at the core of our work
• Kindness
• Compassion
• Social Justice
• Human Dignity
