Homeless Outreach Program
The Homelessness Outreach program works to establish programs and services that aid in preventing homelessness while ensuring that individuals have the necessary tools to assist themselves. The program promotes access to education, employment, health and social services.
The purpose of this program is to ensure that 'no Aboriginal person is homeless in Fort Frances.' This program promotes a 'continuum of support' approach to eliminating homelessness while coordinating a community driven approach to addressing homelessness in our community.
To continue to coordinate and expand outreach services to ensure that the homeless can access all relevant services and supports that are available.
To enhance existing supports in accessing, locating and maintaining housing.
To secure funding and provide increased access and awareness to services available for the homeless and the at-risk homeless population.
