2017 Summit for Solving Homelessness in Timmins

Living Space hosted its’ first Summit for Solving Homelessness in Timmins on September 27th and 28th 2017.

The Summit was an important step forward in the development of these solutions by bringing together key stakeholders from the community and beyond. The event will also position Timmins as a leader in the field of homelessness and poverty reduction in Northern Ontario.
