Event description

Description

The hope of Belong 2018: Strangers No More is to foster belonging in the National Capital Region by equipping Ottawa-area churches to welcome, in Christ's name, neighbours who have been marginalized.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Tim Huff has stitched together a radical life of service among children, youth, and adults facing profound physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual challenges. His journey of fulltime service, learning and advocacy for poor, oppressed, misunderstood and marginalized people has taken him across Canada, the United States and around the world, as both an avid learner and highly sought after speaker and teacher regarding pro-active community building and compassionate responses to domestic poverty, homelessness, marginalization and poverty of spirit.

Tim’s resume of direct service and leadership includes roles with the Ontario Camp of the Deaf and Frontlines Youth Centre. He founded or co-founded the Light patrol street outreach, the Hope Exchange StreetLevel Network and serves on various non-profit boards. Tim currently serves as the "Creative and Development Lead" of Youth Unlimited’s Compassion Series.

Tim is the author of the award-winning best-sellers Bent Hope; A Street Journal, Dancing with Dynamite; Celebrating Against the Odds, and The Yuletide Factor; Cause for Perpetual Comfort and Joy. He is also the author/illustrator of the award-winning best-selling children’s books The Cardboard Shack Beneath the Bridge; Helping Children Understand Homelessness and It’s Hard Not to Stare: Helping Children Understand Disabilities, The Honour Drum; Sharing First Nations Truth with Children (co-written with acclaimed First Nations teacher/musician, Cheryl Bear).

Tim, married to Diane, is the father of two beloved young adult children – Sarah Jane and Jake.
