A Better Tent City
#1
This isn't really a permanent solution to homelessness, but it is (at least in my opinion) a very worthy initiative to find a better solution for our region's rough sleepers (maybe 100-200 people in total). Assuming that we get approval for this, and can sign up a few other properties, it would be a significant mitigation of the rough-sleeping issue. To be followed, hopefully, by a proper long-term solution.

If you are willing to support this, I encourage you to make a (tax-deductible!) donation at the Social Development Centre Waterloo Region:
