Good Speaks is a Toronto based charity focused on eliminating homelessness. We work in partnership with different organizations such as foods banks, homeless shelters and safe injection sites to stop homelessness. Good Speaks believes in the contribution of both the private and the public sector to achieve our goals.
As a christian and humanitarian organization, we are on the firm belief that all types of people should receive our help. Salvation is available for all and we believe that it our divine duty to help those who are less fortunate.
The city of Toronto has cut back many social initiatives and we feel that we need to step our efforts to eradicate homelessness. We have brought together people from all walks of life to aid us in our efforts ranging from individuals to churches and even corporations.
We believe that life is sacred and our divine duty is to help others. The founder of this organization, Melanie Strockzi, was an influential member who started this organization. From her efforts, she grew this charity initiative to being present in multiple cities.
We are proud to say that every Sunday, we deliver food to the homeless in the Moss Park and Regent Park area. We also provide free clothing for both men and women and sanitary wipes to women. Our church also provides free short term accommodations on a case by case basis.

We would like to give a shout out to a few of our sponsors who have made a big difference in the lives of other. The first company we would like to thank is Young-Winfield Spices, a spice company located in Toronto. They have been gracious enough to donate many jars of spices including black pepper, cinnamon and ginger for our food drive initiative. The second company we would like to thank is Daily Bread. Daily Bread believes that food is a basic human right and works with other 150 different food banks and supplies bread year round to the homeless and needy. Lastly, we would like to thank Simply Ingredient Spices and Herbs for their contribution of herbs including jasmine, thyme, basil and oregano. Their contribution was small but greatly appreciated. We are in partnership with Food Banks Canada to stop hunger across the country and represent their Toronto Chapter. We have also partnered with a paralegal to provide legal services for those convicted of drug charges and would like to clear their convictions and receive a fresh start in life. They are able to give discounted rates for their services and also provide assistance for landlord and tenant matters.
