Media Advisory - Ending homelessness is goal of Street Needs Assessment
The City of Toronto will begin a drive to recruit volunteers to conduct the Street Needs Assessment. Up to 1,500 volunteers will be needed to conduct the survey on the evening/night of April 19, 2006.

The event on March 3, 2006 is an opportunity for media to find out more about the Street Needs Assessment and the registration of volunteers required to conduct it.

Date: Friday, March 3
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Adelaide Resource Centre for Women, 67 Adelaide St. E., (corner of Church and Adelaide Streets)

The purpose of the Street Needs Assessment is to better understand the number and service needs of homeless individuals, so that City-funded programs and services are best suited to help these individuals end their homelessness. The information from the survey will be used to improve the ways in which services to people who are homeless and living outdoors and in shelters are planned and delivered.

The City is collaborating with community agencies on the Street Needs Assessment. The Adelaide Resource Centre for Women reflects the partnership and collaborative efforts of the City and community agencies in delivering services to homeless and marginally housed women. The Centre provides a full range of supports in a single location. The Centre partners with community agencies and other government services to offer programs ranging from health care and housing advice to hot meals and social activities.
