Huron County, Ontario – In recognition of National Housing Day (Canada) on November 22, the County of Huron has released Be Part of the Solution, a public awareness campaign to support the sharing of resources surrounding homelessness and housing instability in Huron.
“Becoming informed on the complex topic of homelessness is one of the most valuable things a person can do to address housing instability in our community,” said Huron County Warden, Glen McNeil. “We must all become advocates for our community’s most vulnerable citizens by educating ourselves and speaking up to prevent false information from spreading.”
Huron County residents are invited to Be Part of the Solution to end homelessness by reviewing and sharing these resources through their own channels and networks, such as social media sharing or neighbourhood conversations.
“The Be Part of the Solution campaign offers fact-based resources and identifies five, easy to take, actions that empower us all to work together to Be Part of the Solution to reduce and end homelessness in our community,” added Warden McNeil.
The County’s Be Part of the Solution campaign will be ongoing for the 2021/22 season and community participation is welcome throughout the duration of the campaign. Huron residents can participate by sharing campaign resources and/or by taking one, or all, of the five actions outlined within the campaign.
The County of Huron thanks its partner agencies and the Huron community for their continued support and commitment to working together to prevent and address homelessness and housing instability in Huron.
