About Street To Trail Association:

Street to Trail Association (S2T) provides outdoor hiking, camping and cycling opportunities for Toronto's homeless, so they can experience the beauty and therapeutic calmness of nature. S2T believes that getting troubled people away from the city to participate in a positive environment with nature can increase their self-confidence, overcome addictions, find new, meaningful relationships and rediscover lost feelings of peace and hope. Participants are provided with training, food and connected to outreach programs while re-discovering a path of physical existence.

S2T programs are not exclusive to the homeless and anyone is invited to attend for a nominal fee. S2T has a three-tiered payment system: those with their own equipment pay to cover the cost of food, anyone without equipment who can afford to pay the daily rate will be supplied equipment by S2T, and the surplus helps pay for those who cannot afford to pay, giving them an opportunity they would otherwise not have had. In F2011, S2T ran 77 day-hikes and 32 multi-day trips to the wilderness.

Financial Review:

Administrative costs are 28% of total charity value with fundraising costs representing 1.5% of donations. S2T only has enough funding reserves to cover 5% of annual program costs.
