Strategies for fighting homelessness cannot continue to be viewed as something that is “done to people who already have homes”

The day after I participated in the Housing on the Hill event (teaming up with housing advocates associated with the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness for meetings with Members of Parliament) there was an opportunity to write about the unfortunate public relations dynamics nonprofit organizations and municipalities may face when attempting to address the growing homelessness catastrophe. Every community is unique, but what is occurring in this Pasadena neighbourhood carries lessons and learning applicable to all.
