“The social services sector evolves with the needs of the people that it serves; harm reduction has become a leading framework for those working with individuals facing homelessness and substance use challenges because of its effectiveness in minimizing risk in situations involving physical health, mental health, and/or substance use”
Join us at Village Commons for conversations about how and when to interact with our unhoused neighbours and how you can become a conduit for change around perceptions of homelessness. Twice monthly!
