The fourth annual Homelessness Action Week is coming up October 11 - 17. This year add your voice to the call for a national, affordable housing strategy at www.stophomelessness.ca.
Four Metro Vancouver mayors including Surrey mayor and council are supporting this intiative.
Also, check out the calendar pages on the website to see what is happening in your community. Volunteers are needed for Project Homeless Connect events.
Vancity staff really stepped up to the plate in 2008 and volunteered at Connect events in Surrey and Vancouver. In case you missed it, here is a link to the video Kate made in Surrey last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uc1ctmQfjYA
