Posted Apr 6th, 2016

The RAFT's Jessie Rive took part in conducting a major homelessness survey throughout the Niagara region on Tuesday April 5. A team of about 90 volunteers set out to count the number of homeless individuals living on the street or in the shelter system to get a clearer picture of the homeless population of Niagara. Operating out of base sites in St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Welland, Port Colborne, and Beamsville the initiative surveyed 11 of the 12 municipalities in the Niagara region. The results of the survey will help to better understand what is needed to end homelessness in Canada.
