Poverty in Red Deer: A needs and opportunities assessment

On Wednesday May 22 over 60 citizens of the community were able to gather to hear about the research project Poverty in Red Deer conducted by bassa Social Innovation for CAPRA.  Red Deer needs to develop a strategy on poverty reduction, but in order to do that we needed do know what issues affect people experiencing poverty and what will help them in their situation.  The citizens who attended the conversation where able to provide feedback on what some of the top priorities that our community should be addressing.  The results of today’s conversation along with the results of the research will be presented to Red Deer City Council so that we can work as a community to develop a strategy to address poverty.
