In winter 2013, Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections (LTNC) began offering the Know Your Neighbourhood Series which features monthly talks by an array of speakers about topics like their neighbourhood, nature, history and community life.
Their April 2013 talk will be on the following topic: Homelessness – a Neighbourhood Issue. The talk will be held on Thursday, April 18, beginning at 6:30 pm, in Lake Trail School’s library and is free of charge.
They invite everyone to join them that evening for a unique information night featuring a panel presentation and discussion about the nature and extent of homelessness in our midst, as well as local services that work to address this issue.
Information will be presented about a Lake Trail student research project. Thee will also be joined by the following individuals: Helen Boyd, coordinator of the Care-A-Van program in the Comox Valley; Brent Hobden, Salvation Army community ministries director representing Pidcock House Emergency Shelter in Courtenay); and Ronna-Rae Leonard, chair of the Comox Valley Housing Task Force.
This is a great opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers regarding the issue of local homelessness, as well as to ask questions.
