Share your voice on homelessness in Nelson

What are the issues, contributing factors and potential solutions here in our community?

What are the issues, contributing factors and potential solutions here in our community? The Annual Report Card on Homelessness seeks to shed light on these questions and the surrounding issues.

Set for release this June, the 2012 Report Card on Homelessness will mark the fourth annual for Nelson. The report presents a snapshot of poverty and homelessness in Nelson. It is a tool developed to assist in both understanding and addressing the issues.

This year’s report will include local statistics and stories from around our community.

Residents are invited to contribute their voices.

“The report card is truly a community document,” says Katie Tabor, community coordinator with the Nelson Committee on Homelessness. “Beyond every local statistic, there is a voice and a story that belongs to one of us, one of our neighbours. This year we really want to welcome community members to submit thoughts, stories or quotes”.

Do you want to share a message with the community about local poverty and homelessness issues? Interested in contributing a personal story or your thoughts on the issues? Email or drop it off at 521 Vernon Street. Sign your submission in whatever way you would like to be identified (your name or otherwise). All submissions received by May 22 will be considered for inclusion in this year’s report.

The annual Report Card on Homelessness is researched and produced by the Nelson Committee on Homelessness.

This year’s report is planned for release on June 26.
