Meaghan Bell and Nicole Jackson, work every week with the CHF Client Advisory Committee to ensure the critical client voice that measures the 'on the street' impact of the work we do has a place to be heard and acknowledged. Recently, Meaghan and Nicole invited the members of the Committee to give a noon-hour presentation on their recent findings from a Community Consultation they held to gather community feedback on the updating of the 10 Year Plan.

Adding the value of the lived experience

Posted by Nicole Jackson, CHF Research and Policy Analyst on 3 March 2014 | 0 Comments

I graduated with my Masters in Public Policy not long ago. Among the most basic tenets of making good policy – making any good kind of decision, really – is asking the people who that policy will affect for their thoughts and contributions. There are lots of ways our sector talks about this – meaningful involvement, public consultations, community forums, roundtable discussions, client or peer-led initiatives – all of which are undertaken to consult and include people who are affected by the policies, projects and decisions in question.

No Hope in Homelessness

Posted by Louise Gallagher on 5 February 2014 | 0 Comments

Six years ago, when Calgary’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness was launched in January 2008, I sat in a room with a few hundred other Calgarians and listened to the details and wondered, “Who are they kidding?” They’ll never end it. Not unless, of course, they end addictions and family violence and divorce and loss and child abuse and a whole host of ills that plague our society and contribute to homelessness in the first place.
