London, Ontario recently became the first community in Canada to functionally end veteran homelessness. The significant milestone was made possible thanks, in large part, to the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness led by Tim Richter and their Built for Zero initiative. How did they achieve it? What does this mean for other communities trying to end homelessness? Tune in to find out.
Welcome to In the Business of Change, where we speak with social entrepreneurs impacting their communities and the world. I’m your host Elisa Birnbaum publisher and editor in chief of SEE Change Magazine. On today’s podcast, we speak with Tim Richter, founder, president and CEO of Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH).
In our conversation Tim discusses Built for Zero’s unique approach to ending chronic homelessness and how the innovative model – with its focus on real-time data, collaboration and local leadership – is making real change. Tim then shares how this achievement – in the midst of a pandemic to boot – is proving that, with the right approach, ending all homelessness in Canada is possible and within reach.
