Please join us on Tuesday, November 23rd from 7-8:30 PM for “Understanding Homelessness in Oxford” our next virtual Community United Conversation with guest speaker Lisa Bell, from Built for Zero Canada.
Built for Zero Canada is working with communities, now including Oxford, to help end chronic homelessness and veteran homelessness – that is the first step to end homelessness across Canada. They share data, help deploy resources more effectively, engage leadership at all levels and help communities adopt proven practices to create real change.
Join us, along with other local panelists, as we discuss the unignorable issue of homelessness to better understand why this is happening, the complexities, the systemic issues, and how United Way and others are working to create change to ensure that everyone in our community can have a safe place to call home. Built for Zero Canada believes that we can eliminate homelessness across our Country, and so do we. This is also a great time to learn from the Social Planning Council Oxford about the information and data collected during Oxford’s first Registry Week in November 2020. Insightful interviews with 93 individuals across Oxford helped all of the members of the Oxford Housing Action Collaborative to learn our local truth and to gain insight into the reasons and struggles impacting Oxford citizens facing homelessness.
