Ending homelessness now - Edmonton

I'm very happy to hear that nearly halfway through Edmonton's 10 year plan to end homelessness the city is seeing remarkable results - the best in Canada.

"An early adopter of a Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness and a strong advocate of the Housing First approach, Edmonton moved aggressively to reduce homelessness,”   “It has shown the strongest results for a large city in Canada, with a 30-per-cent reduction in overall homelessness since 2008.” Canadian Homelessness Research Network

We often donate goods that help set up housing for homeless. Couches, microwaves, dishes dressers etc it's all useful and every bit helps.
