Put words into action

It’s a tough issue to confront, so a couple of things are noteworthy about Friday’s launch of the County of Wellington’s 10-year plan for tackling housing and homelessness.
One was the Welcome In Drop-In Centre’s announcement that it has been working on a plan to create a hub of social service agencies working together out of its upstairs space. It’s hoping to be ready by this fall to start delivering services, including to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. It’s good to see such a concrete proposal accompany the lofty goals of the 10-year plan.
Another noteworthy thing about the launch was a promise to annually revisit the 10-year plan, which has both short- and long-term goals, to see if the plan’s targets are being met. This helps allay any fears there might be that the plan might gather dust on a shelf somewhere.
Without somewhere to call home, it’s hard for a person to live the sort of life that we want for others in our community. Hopefully, this 10-year plan will make a difference.
