Biography

Agencies who work with youth experiencing homelessness in Winnipeg are collaborating to develop a long-term plan to end youth homelessness. Winnipeg’s Plan to End Youth Homelessness supports collaboration toward preventing and ending youth homelessness based on voices of youth and community consensus.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnership Strategy.

The goal of Here and Now: The Winnipeg Plan to End Youth Homelessness is to develop the shared vision, action framework, and grounding principles needed for effective systems’ integration, policy and program alignment, and collaboration between all community stakeholders. Together we seek to reduce and end youth homelessness through a community-sanctioned strategy that provides youth and their families with what they need to thrive.
