Shelter need survey underway in Terrace, B.C.

THE Kermode Friendship Society is looking for the public to take part in a survey about getting a youth shelter/drop-in centre here.

The 24-hour Youth Centre and Homeless Shelter Feasibility Study will be for the benefit of everyone in the city, said Karin Ljungh, a development coordinator for the society.

Currently, the city doesn’t have anywhere for homeless males age 16 to 18 to go for shelter and they don’t have any access to support services after regular work hours either, she said.

Kermode Friendship Society is doing the study through the Homelessness Partnership Strategy Project with money from Human Resources and Social Development.

Community development coordinators from the society and their assistants began handing out the short survey, asking questions and collecting data Feb. 15.

The survey only takes about five minutes to complete.
