Selkirk launches project to address homelessness in region

Selkirk College has brought together 17 supporting partners to launch a three-year research project to address homelessness in the region. The Bridging Rural Homelessness and Well-Being: A Sustainable and Collaborative Regional Response project is led by a Selkirk Innovates team and will focus on developing evidence-based decision making, coordinating regional supports, strengthening collaborative relationships, and building regional homelessness response capacity. The project has received a $360K SSHRC grant, as well as partner contributions and commitments that bring the funding up to $650K over three years. “The complex issues surrounding homelessness in our region are not community-specific and it requires a broader lens to provide the needed improvement to well-being of this vulnerable population,” said Selkirk Innovates project director Jayme Jones.
