Innovation Showcase

Join us as we close the conference by learning about three unique and innovative housing projects that are happening right now in New Brunswick. This session will feature presentations about Housing First (Fredericton)  Outflow (Saint John) and Rising Tides (Moncton).

Housing First is a recovery-oriented approach to ending homelessness that centers on quickly moving people experiencing homelessness into independent and permanent housing, and then providing additional supports and services as needed.

Outflow Ministry Inc. is a Christian faith-based charity that works with people in Saint John who live in poverty. We address unemployment, hunger, homelessness, and medical costs. The mission provides everything from meals to shelter and from dental care to a place for friends to gather.  Most importantly The Outflow Mission is a place that provides dignity, life, and hope.  

Rising Tides Community Initiatives is a new non-profit organization aimed at solving the homelessness crisis in Moncton. Rising Tide aims to move people along the housing continuum – from homelessness to market-price rent. It plans to work closely with organizations that are already on the front lines of homelessness, as well as government and the business sector to provide long term, sustainable solutions which are cost effective for all stakeholders.

The 2020 Conference has been postponed. We will update members when new dates have been confirmed.
