Homeless to Housing Survey

In May of 2018 the Homeless to Housing Coalition carried out a survey to better understand who in the Bow Valley is experiencing, or is at risk of experiencing, homelessness. The resulting report, Bow Valley Spring 2018 Homeless Estimation Count, has already been presented at two public information sessions and today was presented to Council for information.
