The MTH events help us comprehend the scale of the housing crisis while providing a tangible way that we can each contribute to our community.
See here the links to the great coverage from our recent forum and decide which of our events galore take your fancy. Which one will you support and in what way?
Milton Canadian Champion coverage
As you may have seen in a recent blog post, MTH hosted its second annual Housing… Our Future Community Forum. Not only did this forum feature community information booths, and amazing speakers, there was also a panel of local community agencies on hand to speak to the impact that poverty has on their clients.
The article links from the Milton Canadian Champion’s series on poverty highlight the forum and other issues MTH is facing – I highly recommend giving them a read if you haven’t already.
The Housing forum was just one of the many events on the agenda for Milton Transitional Housing.
