They do good for others

Hope Haven guests

THEY DID IT ALL FOR FREE. Skilled trades members in Unifor Local 444 donated their time and money to restore a century-old kitchen at the Hope Haven shelter for homeless men in Chatham, Ontario.

The Unifor team of tradespeople stripped the kitchen down to the studs and fully rebuilt it in just ten days in February 2020.

Funding for the $50,000 kitchen restoration was donated by the Unifor Social Justice Fund.

Unifor will also fund renovations to the shelter’s common and sleeping areas with 14 new beds, new furniture, and fresh paint.

Hope Haven offers a safe shelter to men who find themselves homeless for a variety of reasons, including addiction, job loss, and mental health issues.
