SAGA Releases “Smithers 2014 Homelessness Council Findings Report”

The “Smithers 2014 Homelessness Council Findings Report” report represents the findings of a mixed-methods research project commissioned by the Smithers Action Group Association (SAGA) to identify the number of homeless individuals in Smithers, the issues facing them and their service housing needs. An additional component of this report is a small survey conducted with individuals potentially facing housing affordability issues or at risk of homelessness who were accessing meal programs in Smithers. The Smithers Homeless Count was conducted on November 28, 2014. The Count provides an estimate of the Smithers homeless population on one day – November 28, 2014. It also provides results of key informant interviews, and the results of a survey of two meal programs hosted on November 28 and 29th, 2014.

On Thursday, March 26th, the Smithers Action Group Association will be releasing our Homelessness Count Report.

Drop in anytime between 3pm - 7pm to learn more about homelessness in our community.

Two presentations, on the recent homelessness count and findings of the report, will be held at 3.00pm and 7pm.
