Annual General Meeting & 3-Year Strategic Plan
At the end of September, we hosted our Annual General Meeting where we shared our 2017 Report to Community and three-year strategic plan. Here are some of the statistics we found:
In 2017, 58% of shelter guests were children, which has increased by 26% this year;
In 2018, we have experienced a 20% increase in families seeking shelter, housing and assistance;
We have been at / over capacity for 88.5% of this year, which is a 69% increase over last year.
These numbers are high but with a clear strategic approach as outlined in our three-year plan here and new board to lead the team, we look forward to making improvements in the year to come in our fight to end family homelessness.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to introduce our new Board:
Hsui-Yan Chan, Chair
Bruce Alger, Past-Chair
Neil Smith, Past-Chair
Munaf Mohamed, Vice-Chair
Leela Domingo, Treasurer
Genevieve Groulx, Secretary
