REACH Edmonton

After launching in October 2015, the 24/7 Crisis Diversion partnership is preparing a report back to the community. The event is being held at the Santa Maria Goretti Centre (11050-90 Street) from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 15, 2017.

The event will feature a series of short vignettes, a report by an independent evaluator and a panel discussion with representatives from partner organizations. The panelists will discuss collaboration, partnerships and their experiences.

“This partnership is always changing and adapting. It is a unique experience for all of us, to participate in a collaboration that is always in development and looks for innovations to better serve the most vulnerable in our city,” said Lindsay Daniller, director of community initiatives and strategic development. “We’re looking forward to sharing what we’ve learned with the community.”

Register online to attend. This event will also be webcast; viewers can stream it live on March 15.
