A Place to Call Home – Community Update

November is Housing Month in Edmonton, an annual campaign that raises awareness of the need for affordable housing throughout our community. Since our last Community Update in November 2016, there has been a lot of work and much progress. With the release of A Place to Call Home: Edmonton’s Updated Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness in July 2017, we committed to bold targets, as well as regular updates to community on our progress and impact.

Please join us on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 as we celebrate successes, share local data, and profile new initiatives. Our partner organizations will be presenting and providing updates, learning, and next steps on their work and we will be updating the progress we have made over the past year. Reserve your free ticket here.


We are proud to announce Rosanne Haggerty from the Institute for Global Homelessness as a keynote speaker for the event.
