Session is full.
Homelessness and access to affordable housing continue to be of significant concern throughout BC as individuals face challenges in finding the supports they need. This panel will highlight collaborative approaches taken in Abbotsford and BC’s Capital Region, with a focus on effective community planning and system coordination. We’ll explore successful approaches on how to frame planning activities around individual-level needs, how to emphasize the strengths within an existing system, and how to ensure that all systems are factored into solutions across the spectrum.
