Strategy to Reduce Poverty and Homelessness

Homelessness is an emerging social issue identified within Spruce Grove as the number of individuals accessing local and regional services who are either homeless or at risk for homelessness continues to rise.

Recognizing there is a desire within the community to engage and be a part of the solution, the City of Spruce Grove is working to create a Five-Year Strategy to Reduce Poverty and Homelessness.

The development of the strategy began in June 2018 and will conclude in early 2019. This process will involve reviewing and researching best practices, data gathering, and engaging with a variety of stakeholders and community members.

The outcome will be a strategy that has been created by members of the community and social services sector, and which supports collective action and collaboration to achieve sustainable solutions over the next five years in Spruce Grove.

The work is being led by Spruce Grove Family and Community Support Services (FCSS). Urban Matters CCC has been engaged to support the process and development of the strategy.
