On behalf of the Burnaby Task Force On Homelessness, I would like to publically thank Mayor Corrigan for visiting Progressive Housing Society’s Outreach Resource Centre on Thursday April 21st. Mayor Corrigan brough
t cookies for everyone as he toured the facility and shared conversation with the staff and volunteers that operate and facilitate the Outreach Resource Centre each Thursday morning. Mayor Corrigan’s visit was warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Mayor Corrigan’s visit at the Outreach Resource Centre followed one week after people in attendance at the Outreach Resource Centre participated in the survey process for Burnaby’s newly created Social Sustainability Strategy.
Burnaby’s Outreach Resource Centre opened in November 2006 and provides food, clothing outreach worker support and access to medical care for those citizens living in extreme poverty and dealing with homelessness. The Outreach Resource Centre is operated by the Progressive Housing Society, a member of the Burnaby Task Force On Homelessness.
Again, on behalf of the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness, I wish to express our gratitude
for Mayor Corrigan’s interest in the Outreach Resource Centre. It was heart-warming to see our City’s Mayor genuinely interested in the welfare of our most vulnerable citizens.
The Burnaby Task Force On Homelessness is committed to working with all levels of government, the health authority, social service agencies, business, faith communities, and concerned citizens to ensure the provision of housing, support services, and adequate income for Burnaby residents who are without housing or at risk of homelessness in Burnaby. www.burnabyhomelesstaskforce.org
