Open a "judgement free" all in one shelter that caters to helping all people in North Bay

Homelessness is a rising global issue.  North Bay is a small Northern Ontario community that experiences full seasons with rigid winters and this community needs a permanent residence to house an ALL in ONE shelter that caters to all walks of life.  We currently do not have a shelter that opens their doors to even those struggling with substance abuse and all of our shelters are at max level.  These individuals end up seeking shelter on the streets or makeshift cabins, sometimes resorting to pety crimes to make ends meet, countless hospital visits, jail time. It truely is a vicious cycle. 

I am asking city hall and the mayor to come up with an immediate judgement free solution to help house those currently living outdoors this winter and to take the next three seasons to have a judgement free, hassle free solution that will help create jobs while healing our community.  We need a solid foundation that can include a larger soup kitchen, take-away food pantry, social service workers, spiritual healers / addiction counsellors, beds, warmth, compassion, nurses, safe injection site, harm reduction program, security, laundry and showers, perhaps a common room.  One building, one cause, one love.

Lets make sense of this change and demand to raise the bar!

Homelessness can happen to anyone.
