Over 467 individuals came to Under One Umbrella 2015 – providing valuable resources to individuals in need and a meaningful way to connect with service providers and friends.
The event was held at the Maritime Labour Centre for the 8th annual Under One Umbrella homeless connect. 40 social service providers and community partners were on hand to deliver services to all in attendance. Some of the services included free haircuts, hearing tests, bike repair, acupuncture, foot care, stuff for pets, foodbank hampers and self-care kits for all and a wide range of advocacy and outreach services all for those who are homeless at risk of homelessness.
