What we provide to those experiencing homeless
TorontoTooth is a nonprofit project supported by Calumet and Stong Colleges of the Faculty of Health at York University as an Agents of Change project. Our project aims to provide the homeless youth community of Toronto with oral hygiene products.
The homeless community of Toronto are the most under-served portion of the city's population when it comes to oral health. Our goal is to improve the health of the youth within this community by making oral hygiene accessible.
We strive to raise awareness about income-related inequalities in dental care in the Greater Toronto Area, and hope to ultimately improve social justice in oral health.
