I want to work with community groups in Grande Prairie to make a housing facility for our Homeless and Mental Health Homeless people. These people have slipped through the cracks and are now being marginalized for being homeless. We have mental health patients who are on our streets and need the guidance and support that this facility will offer them. Ideally I'd like to have them in apartments with access to phone and internet to help them obtain employment and seek proper guidance from support workers and other support services through out the community. If we can implement a program we can obliterate homelessness in Grande Prairie and on top of being the hub of the North we can finally solve a huge problem that we have here in the Northern Communities.
The 50k would kickstart this and make it become a reality. I've been in contact with a few city politicians and other community advocates so the money would be used to acquire a vacant building to lease. We could even furnish it with EASY HOME for more PR for the company. This would ultimately get the community involved and get something going that was ruined by a lawyer who didn't like the proximity of the last building and ruined the last attempt to fix a problem that has been a growing issue in the North.
Grande Prairie is a very unique community. It's a fast growing Northern Community in NW Alberta. We are made up of all walks of life and you could call us an oil city. We are the Hub for the North so if you are wanting to travel to NWT, YK or Alaska you have to drive through Grande Prairie to get there. We are blessed with big beautiful skies and Northern Lights to see out our front door. If you like camping hunting, fishing, out door stuff then this place is where you want to be. Located close to the rocky Mountains and lots of great lakes/rivers to swim at. This place is a little piece of paradise if your a outdoorsy kind of person.
