Homes For Homeless

Matt Galloway spoke with Jonathan Rosenthal. He is a criminal lawyer who teaches at Osgoode Hall Law School, and one of 20 people who are hosting dinner parties at their homes tomorrow night. It is in support of Homes First, an organization that provides housing for people who would otherwise be living on the streets. The hosts include Metro Morning's own Mary Wiens, along with former astronaut Marc Garneau and Dave Neelands, Dean of Divinity at Trinity College. The tickets are all gone for this year, but the organization plans to expand the fundraiser next year to include more hosts and guests across the city.
