HOMELESSNESS

 

We believe in being on the compassionate side. Homeless people are our fellow citizens who need support. 

  • Review our policies with this basic approach in mind. Emphasis is on the well-being of the community, including homeless. We do not believe policing homeless constantly is the solution – unless when it is really required.
  • Homelessness is tied with housing affordability, greenspaces and other mental health issues. We are committed to work on the root causes of homelessness as a long term strategy.
  • We will work with provincial government for more modular housing, even though this is not really addressing the causes of homelessness. Short term solutions are also important.

We are actively seeking input on this key issue.  If you have suggestions please let us know at info@peoplefirstsurrey.ca
