I will be participating in the '24 Hours Homeless Initiative.' Please consider supporting my efforts to better understand the challenges before us and together with my fellow participants bring awareness to this crucial issue in our community. Your gift is an investment in the lives of our neighbors.

Homelessness often seems to be such an overwhelming issue that we just don’t know how to address let alone solve. The Salvation Army has developed the ‘24 Hours Homeless Initiative’ to be an authentic experience to help community participants better understand the dynamics and challenges of being Homeless and bring awareness to the advocacy and work that is being done by Salvation Army staff to move people toward securing housing and getting access to all the supports they need. It is our hope that lives and our community will be changed because of this exercise.

The event takes place during Homelessness Action Week and will begin on Thursday October 15 at approx. 6:00 pm. Participants will be processed into The Salvation Army Centre of Hope Shelter and will stay with us overnight. The following day participants will be given a life profile, and will be working through a case plan of tasks and things to accomplish given the limited resources they will have available to them. There will be time to de-brief as we commune over a meal at the end of the day.

As you are aware, homelessness is an immense and complex issue issue in our city and the continued increase in demand upon all service providers resources is very challenging.
