11. Apply a person-centered approach to the implementation of the Plan.
We will develop a targeted response to family homelessness in Calgary to address the current over-representation of Indigenous and immigrant families in shelters, and plan for the aging population. We will support partner plans focused on specific segments, including aboriginals, youth, and those suffering from mental illness and addiction.
13. Coordinate policy and funding across government.
We will develop a detailed Policy and Funding Agenda. We will work with governments to develop a System Integration Framework that outlines the key actions and accountabilities, including alignment with areas such as income assistance, infrastructure, health, domestic violence, corrections, child intervention, education, and affordable housing/rent supports.
14. Empower Calgarians in the movement to end homelessness.
We will implement public education and engagement strategies to increase awareness about homelessness risk, how it can be mitigated and how the public can donate resources and volunteer to support the Plan. We will gain public support to advance policy change and funding asks with all levels of government.
