Who we are
Fix the 6ix exists to alleviate, destigmatize, and humanize homelessness.
We alleviate homelessness by combining and re-purposing gift cards to purchase wish list items for homeless shelters in Toronto. Learn more about our ReGiftcard Program.
We Humanize Homelessness through our street outreach program. Fix the 6ix interviews individuals with lived experience to elevate their voices and destigmatize this community.
Fix the 6ix is a volunteer committee trusteed by West Neighbourhood House, a United Way agency. Fix the 6ix was started by Deanna Lentini in 2016.
