WINNIPEG — End Homelessness Winnipeg is receiving $750,000 from the province over the next three years.

Families Minister Heather Stefanson says the funding will be used to support the organization’s work, including coordination and alignment of services for individuals experiencing homelessness and implementation of Winnipeg’s extreme cold-weather response strategy.

“End Homelessness Winnipeg has become one of the city’s most important leaders for co-ordinating homelessness funds and initiatives in Winnipeg,” said Stefanson.

“This funding will allow them to continue to lead a community of organizations and people who make a difference in the daily lives of people who have experienced homelessness.”

The organization also receives support from the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, the City of Winnipeg and the United Way of Winnipeg.
