our nurses

We are a nurse led service that brings an entrepreneurial spirit to providing healthcare to the homeless. A small yet mighty team, we demonstrate adaptability and flexibility to fulfill the many roles beyond “just a nurse”, that are required within a growing organization that is responsive to the needs of the community and its homeless population.

Clinton Baretto NP, Founder and Executive Director

I have been a nurse for 15 years, working in communities in Northern Ontario and the UK, before returning home to the Region of Peel. I have seen the needs of the most vulnerable in our community and I do everything I can to advocate for them. With the support of an incredible team of nurses, I fight alongside individuals experiencing homelessness to make sure their voices are heard, their rights are respected and their needs are finally met.
