A range of service providers in Whitehorse gathered to offer brunch and support to anyone struggling with housing and homelessness in the City.

A brunch and support to anyone struggling with housing and homelessness went in Whitehorse on Thursday.

A number of support agencies all aimed at helping the vulnerable population of Whitehorse are teaming up to streamline wrap-around housing supports in the city.

Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition Housing Coordinator Meg Grudeski says the goal of the brunch is to bring the agencies in partnership out to the people in need, with an easy-to-access listing program available on site.

"People sign a consent form to say they are willing to have their information shared with the housing navigators and services that are working towards ending homelessness in the community. We do an intake of basic personal information, and we're also offering a vulnerability assessment for folks that come by."

She says everyone is welcome to come to the brunch, whether you’re looking for support with housing or whether you want to learn about a By-Name List.

The brunch went from 10 am to 12 pm in the Salvation Army's Parking lot in downtown Whitehorse.
