Homelessness Partnership Strategy

Policy, Research, Development


"Our actions to eliminate housing poverty and homelessness must be multi-faceted. They must recognize all of the appropriate sectors – social, economic, health, education, justice, etc. – and must be pursued in ways that are co-operative, collaborative, comprehensive, systemic, and sustained. Isolated efforts that are not co-ordinated and directed with purpose would fall short and lead to failure."
- Grant Wanzell, Housing Poverty in Halifax 2017
