To address and mitigate growing homelessness in Yorkton, the Society for the Involvement of Good Neighbours (SIGN) engaged Praxis Management Consulting to conduct a review of Yorkton’s homeless and hard-to-house population. The comprehensive review was started in December 2020 and completed in May 2021.
The data provided evidence that the hard-to-house and homelessness issue in Yorkton is worsening, and a solution is needed to correct the current path.
