Mission – Free Events in Mission during Homelessness Action Week, October 8-14. The District of Mission will start work with seniors and youth to develop a community centre with dedicated space for each group.
The purpose of Homelessness Action Week is to raise public awareness around the truths and dispel the myths surrounding this complex situation as well as collaborate towards local solutions.
Sponsored by the Mission Stone Soup collaborative and coordinated by the Mission outreach table, many community agencies have come together to offer a variety of free events to the public offering a platform of connection and engagement with the people that work in Mission directly with this broad population. Mission is a very active community in this area and service providers would be happy to meet with you, answer your questions and share information about the diversity of initiatives taking place right now in your community.
