Ending Homelessness – Changing Lives
Presented by The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce and the Homeless Commission.
Over the last three years, more than 1,600 people have been housed under Edmonton’s Plan to End Homelessness. Internationally renowned entrepreneur Frank O’Dea, who founded Second Cup, the largest chain of gourmet coffees and teas in the country, fully understands the struggle of beginning a new life off the streets. In his early teens, Frank’s life went off the rails into a downward spiral. Now, a successful businessman, Frank has always believed in the importance of giving back to the community.
Join fellow business people at this unique opportunity to hear Frank speak, and have a chance to personally make an impact in the goal to end homelessness
