Homelessness Action Week 2013 – October 13 -19

Save the Date: Homelessness Action Week is October 13 – 19th, 2013
Homelessness Action Week is a Canada wide event, and it provides an important opportunity for the North Shore Homelessness Task Force to reach out to the community and raise awareness about homelessness and support for initiatives to address it. As with any awareness raising event, the intention is not to think we can solve a problem in a week, but to start a conversation that will last throughout the year. We aim to let community members in need know about the services are available to them, to inform all community members about how they can help, and to enhance the awareness about homelessness and its solutions across the North Shore.

Metro Vancouver Regional Theme and Activities:
The regional theme this year is ‘Invisible Homelessness’ with a goal to raise awareness of the many people who are without stable, suitable housing. There is a regional communications and media relations plan that will be rolling out to support our local efforts. A Twitter hashtag has been created #startwithhome, please feel free to use to this to help spread the word.
