Housing and Homelessness Partnership led by United Way Halifax
(Halifax NS) United Way Halifax is pleased to lead a new multi-stakeholder partnership working towards ending homelessness in the Halifax Regional Municipality by 2019. The Partnership brings organizations together to focus on affordable housing and homelessness for the first time. The group has one common agenda: to collectively set priorities and change the landscape for people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or living in housing they really can’t afford.
Participants in the partnership include Halifax Regional Municipality, Affordable Housing Association of Nova Scotia (AHANS), Housing Nova Scotia, Investment Property Owners Association of Nova Scotia (IPOANS), Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) IWK Health Centre, Capital District Health Authority (CDHA), Shelter Nova Scotia and United Way Halifax.
Catherine Woodman, President and CEO, United Way Halifax, officially announced the formation of the Partnership today during the third Annual Conference on Housing & Homelessness in Halifax. “The timing for this partnership is critical as all levels of government, private sector and social service providers are committed to making a difference with this major issue. It is an innovative and deliberate approach to build and sustain a multi-sector pathway working toward ending homelessness by 2019,” said Woodman.
Thanks for running!
Thanks to those who ran with us on Wednesday! The weather was good and everyone had a great time. We were so pleased to see runners and walkers from the Federal Government, Provincial Government and HRM, as well as many other community members. We had well over 100 people in total! Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the run possible.
