HELP BREAK THE CYCLE OF HOMELESSNESS
Every year, over 26,000 individuals experiencing homelessness visit Alberta’s Emergency Rooms—and exactly zero of them are housed following these visits.
Through support of the Bridge Healing “Asamina Kochi” program (which translates from Cree into "to try again"), the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation is working to address this unmet need in care, and break the cycle of homelessness.
The Bridge Healing program works by providing emergency patients experiencing homelessness, with their consent, with transitional housing at the Jasper Place Wellness Centre (JPWC). There, they can stay for up to 60 days and will receive health support, social support, short-term work opportunities, and other supports to help them get ready to move onward—including assistance finding affordable permanent housing.
The City of Edmonton has recently agreed to fund one year of the pilot program, covering $290,000 in operational costs.
Our goal is to raise an additional $290,000 to support the building of a second new 12-suite Bridge Healing Housing Unit, effectively doubling the number of patients the program will be able to support.
Please give generously today and help us provide more second chances for Edmontonians experiencing homelessness.
