A feat that has seemed impossible until one community “Connected the Dots … with The Respect Principle” by recognizing that the most logical, practical, and compassionate way to address homelessness is first to provide homes for the homeless … so they would have a safe shelter to begin the process of healing and assimilation in order to move from barely surviving to eventually thriving.
With the implementation of the “Housing First” strategy, Medicine Hat, a community of over 60,000, is reeling from the shock of how much money is being saved by this alternate strategy because health care and other related costs once needed for the homeless is no longer needed.
Bravo Medicine Hat citizens! You just made history for your compassionate initiative! Well done!
