HPS supports communities across Canada to develop local solutions to homelessness. Priorities are identified by communities through a comprehensive community planning process involving stakeholders from all sectors of the communities. Programs are funded based on these community priorities. The focus is on long term solutions that strengthen community capacity and build sustainability.
Our responsibility as Community Entity is to work with the local Community Advisory Board (CAB) to develop the Community Plan. The CAB is composed of members representing various sectors including Aboriginal Organizations, Government, Health, Emergency Shelters, Housing Organizations, Corrections, the City of Prince Albert and the Business Community. The CAB participates in the development of the Community Plan and the Call for Proposals and approves funding proposals. River Bank as CE acts as the administrative and community development arm of the CAB.
Prince Albert has embraced the Housing First strategy as part of our Community Plan and a HF Project will be announced in the near future. We look forward to working towards making a significant contribution towards a solution to this issue.
