Penticton Western News – February 17, 2021

Penticton’s 100 More Homes plans to create a unified list of local people experiencing homelessness in the community.

In a presentation to Penticton city council on Feb. 16, the community group provided an update on the last year, and their plans ahead which includes the creation of a by-name list.

“A by-name list, would be a real-time list of those currently experiencing homelessness in the community,” said Naomi Woodland, coordinator of 100 More Homes Penticton.

The list would help to provide information such as the in- and out-flow of people in the homeless population, as well as information on individuals with the services they need.
