Proud community is willing to help homeless

This is an innovative and compassionate move and I want to thank all the people involved

I was delighted to read that the City of Campbell River, Discovery Chiropractic and the Family Services Society have come to an agreement which will see a sobering assessment centre open soon in Campbell River.

This is an innovative and compassionate move and I want to thank all the people involved.

The homeless shelter pilot project last winter was a great success and it was clear that not only did it provide a desperately needed haven for our homeless citizens it also made economic sense.

Then the project ended and it closed. By providing a permanent place in our community to serve some of the poorest and least advantaged citizens we are once again showing great leadership and it is reflection of the humanity and compassion of this town.

My husband and I moved here a little more than five years ago and I am so happy and proud that we call Campbell River home.
