Grande Prairie's Ending Homelessness Year Two Report Card 2016-2017

In 2009 Grande Prairie adopted a Housing First approach to help people find housing, stabilize their lives, connect with the community and maintain housing long term. In the intervening years, over 1000 stories of people walking out of homelessness into a home have unfolded. Every person that has come into the Housing First program has shown courage, strength and resolve and we are fortunate to have been a part of their journey. Homeless Initiatives’ role is to facilitate a healthy Housing First network through funding, research, evaluation and awareness. In 2016-17 we saw the Housing First network evolve and adapt to a changing economic environment, and we are pleased to share updates with you in this report.
