Richmond residents invited to free discussions about homelessness

The city wants to hear from the community about homelessness in Richmond.
Richmond youth held a five day initiative to tackle homeless misconceptions and figure out ways on how community members can help.

Richmond residents are invited to share their thoughts about homelessness in the city.

The City of Richmond is hosting a free, two-part community conversation to address what makes a home and what homelessness means.

Discussions will address topics such as what contributes to the circumstances of homelessness and ideas on how actions, big or small, can help build a more connected and inclusive community.

Part one of the conversation, titled “Home” will explore the definition of home and homelessness through shared experiences, stories, and discussions in June.

Part two, will build on discussions from part one and explore ways to help build a supportive network within the family.

“These are challenging, complex topics and we hope these conversations will build relationships and spark ideas for how we can all work together to create a more inclusive community,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.

Registration is required through the city's events page by clicking here or by phone at 604-276-4300, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
