Draft for Discussion: Ending Homelessness for People Living in Encampments Toolkit

December 9, 2020 - 8:55 am / Blog, News

The Ending Homelessness for People Living in Encampments Toolkit is now in its draft for discussion phase, whereby readers are encouraged to review and send written feedback and recommendations. The toolkit’s purpose is to give communities tools for a housing-focused, rights-based approach to ending homelessness for people living in encampments.

 

The Ending Homelessness for People Living in Encampments Toolkit is a living document in its draft phase, and it’s ready for discussion and feedback. This living document was commissioned by the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness and drafted by OrgCode Consulting Inc. with the intention of giving communities tools for a housing-focused, rights-based approach to ending homelessness for people living in encampments. Housing, with person-centred supports, is the solution to homelessness for the people living in encampments.
