CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 22, 2014) - The Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) will use data from the Point-in-Time Count (Count) conducted on January 15, 2014 to update Calgary's 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness (10 Year Plan). A detailed report was released today, showing changes in the number and demographics of people experiencing homelessness in Calgary.
Key findings in the report are as follows.
The Count was sponsored by Burnet, Duckworth and Palmer LLP. Counts are one day snapshots of homelessness that capture numbers and basic demographics of people staying in emergency shelters, short-term supportive housing, jails, hospitals, addictions treatment facilities and on the streets.
The report can be found here and a backgrounder on the Count can be found here.
The CHF leads implementation of Calgary's 10 Year Plan with agencies, the private sector, government, the faith community, other foundations and all Calgarians to end homelessness in Calgary once and for all. For more information, visit calgaryhomeless.com.
