According to research, the number of families requiring emergency shelter services in Canada continues to increase. Most shelter systems are not suited to meet the needs of this complex population which causes families to move between cars, campgrounds and friends’ homes. This webinar for front line staff will review recent homelessness trends and discuss best-practices for responding to families experiencing homelessness.

She has diverse experience developing, implementing and evaluating homelessness initiatives in the non-profit, government and academic sectors.
