The Engaging Vulnerable Persons Training/Workshop breaks down common myths and misconceptions by providing an understanding of homelessness and its root causes. It offers skills and knowledge that provide individuals the comfort and confidence to not only co-exist with men and women in their community experiencing homelessness, but also interact with them meaningfully, using compassion, empathy, and crisis intervention techniques when necessary.

The following audio clip is from one of our EVP workshops given to some staff members at the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association in June 2021. Each presentation is somewhat different as questions and scenarios differ but the overall context remains the same. If you would like to book an EVP for your group, please email us at
