Mayors Panel on Homelessness
Medicine Hat has committed to finding someone a place to live within 10 days of learning he/she is homeless. Eugene, Oregon has been exploring shelter alternatives, such as micro-housing in Opportunity Village. And Victoria is a strong supporter of a Regional Housing First Strategy. Together, these three cities have one common goal: to end homelessness. At a free event hosted by Our Place, Mayor Ted Clugston of Medicine Hat, AB, Mayor Kitty Piercy of Eugene, Oregon, and Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps discuss what their cities are doing about homelessness, and what solutions they see for the future.
