On the Way Home est un balado canadien hebdomadaire produit par Blue Door et l'Alliance canadienne pour mettre fin à l'itinérance.
Formerly known as “Out Of The Blue”, “On the Way Home” invites guests and experts in the field of housing and homelessness to educate and create awareness around some of the gaps and challenges individuals and organizations face across Canada. Your hosts, Michael Braithwaite openly speak with diverse guests each week, to discuss innovative programs, stories of hope and hardship and new perspectives on ending homelessness in Canada.
On the Way Home est né de la collaboration entre Blue Door et l'Alliance canadienne pour mettre fin à l'itinérance. Après une année fructueuse avec le podcast "Out Of the Blue", les équipes de Blue Door et CAEH ont voulu collaborer pour créer un podcast national qui aborderait les défis de mettre fin à l'itinérance ici sur le sol national et à l'étranger.
Blue Door, situé dans la région de York, offre des logements d'urgence sûrs et supervisés, ainsi que des services de logement et de soutien aux personnes à risque ou en situation d'itinérance pour obtenir et conserver un logement abordable.
