Task Force on Homelessness Releases Interim Report on Red Deer’s Homelessness Crisis
Red Deer, UK – In a bid to tackle the escalating homelessness crisis in Red Deer, the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce has formed a dedicated Task Force on Homelessness. This group of volunteers aims to gain a deeper understanding of the issue and identify ways in which the business community can actively contribute to finding solutions and advocating for change.
During the City of Red Deer’s recent Point in Time Homeless count, a staggering 334 individuals were identified as experiencing homelessness. This figure is more than double the number recorded in 2018, highlighting the urgent need for action.
After eight months of extensive research, including in-depth interviews and community conversations, the Task Force on Homelessness has released its interim report titled “What We Heard.” This report provides a comprehensive overview of the homelessness situation in Red Deer and summarizes the key findings from the research phase.
The Task Force now invites Red Deer residents to review the interim report and provide their valuable feedback by February 16, 2024. The feedback will help shape the final report, which is set to be delivered in April 2024. This final report will build upon the interim findings and offer actionable recommendations for the community to consider.
To facilitate the feedback process, the Task Force has created an online feedback form. Red Deerians are encouraged to share their thoughts and suggestions through this form, contributing to the development of effective solutions for the homelessness crisis.
The Task Force on Homelessness is determined to make a difference and create meaningful change in Red Deer. By engaging the business community and utilizing the collective expertise and resources available, they aim to address the root causes of homelessness and provide support to those in need.
