Come and hear about new and exciting developments in our work towards ending homelessness and supporting affordable housing. You will hear reports about our search for a full-time Housing Ambassador, new workshops for community groups, the great success of this year’s Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build, and more.
We also would like to engage you in an initiative of great importance in the fight to end homelessness. EndPoverty Edmonton, chaired by Mayor Don Iveson and Bishop Jane Alexander, has been working for over a year to devise a strategy to end poverty in Edmonton within a generation. The Strategy has now been released.
Bishop Jane Alexander will speak about her experience working on EndPoverty Edmonton and its connection with our ongoing efforts to end homelessness. City staff will then facilitate a discussion. In preparation, we encourage you to review the Strategy ahead of the meeting at www.endpovertyedmonton.ca/new-page-1/
The meeting will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon Thursday, October 29 at the Catholic Pastoral Centre, 8421 – 101 Avenue, Edmonton. To confirm your attendance, please register at https://interfaith-housing.eventbrite.ca.
