M03: Co-ordinated Responses to Ending Homelessness
Homeless systems are complex and service providers, housing professionals and governments sometimes feel as though they’re putting ever more resources into the system only to get the same results. Faced with very limited housing supplies and poor coordination among stakeholders, communities across BC are creating their own responses and learning how to better coordinate the housing and support services that we have. This session will present experiences from Abbotsford and the Capital Regional District and will include an open discussion with attendees to reflect on their own communities.
Presenters: Dena Kae Beno, Housing and Homelessness Coordinator, City of Abbotsford; Lynda Brummit, Research Coordinator for Coordinated Intake and Referral Project, City of Abbotsford; Don Elliott, Executive Director, Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness; John Reilly, Manager, Housing Planning and Programs, Capital Regional District; and Ron van Wyk, Provincial Program Director, MCC Enterprises, with Alice Sundberg, moderator
