New project announced to address homelessness.

Funding from the federal government to Methy Construction and Maintenance Corporation will provide Aboriginal people who are homeless with new transitional housing. Methy Construction is receiving over $445,000 in Homelessness Partnering Strategy funding to create four transitional housing units for single-parent Aboriginal families who are homeless. The HPS provides structures and supports that help people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to achieve self-sufficiency. The HPS encourages a housing-first approach, recognizing that housing stability is an important first step in addressing homelessness. It is also necessary for the success of other interventions such as education and training, the development of life skills and the management of mental health issues.
