Homelessness in a Neighbourhood with “No Homeless People"

This month, the United Church of Canada is publishing a series of blog posts that focuses on how people in the United Church are working to alleviate/eliminate poverty and homelessness in Canada.

As part of that piece of work, Christ First member Aimee Gavin has written a blog post about the Compass advocacy committee's work (from her perspective) that has been published on the United Church's national website.
