Ascension and St. Mark's co-hosted a very informative roundtable about homelessness on Saturday night -January 28. We heard from speakers from Ascension, the Diocese of Huron, the Middlesex-London Health Unit, Youth Opportunities Unlimited, and St. Paul's Social Services who talked about not only homelessness but also the related issues of addiction, mental health, and food security in our city. We also had a chance for informal discussion afterward. And we shared a meal similar to what is provided by food programs to the homeless. It was well attended, with about 70 people from Anglican, Christian Reformed and United churches as well as the Unitarian Fellowship. A big thank-you to those who shared their experience.
