Housing First and how to keep people housed is a forum to be held at Christ Church in Dartmouth on Tuesday March 28, 2023 at 7 pm. All are welcome. The panel will include Housing First specialists from the North End Community Health Centre who are the providers of support services at Overlook, the new residence for those persons who are homeless in the north end of Dartmouth. It is anticipated a housing specialist from the Canadian Mental Health Association and other organizations providing services to people who are homeless will participate in the panel.‘Housing First’ is an approach to ending homelessness that centres on moving people experiencing homelessness into independent and permanent housing as a first step.  The approach affirms that stable housing is a primary need, and that issues, such as addictions or mental health, can be better addressed once this need is fulfilled.
