About Us: Partners and Funders

Our thanks

Many levels of government, civil society, community members, and representatives of the faith and business community were involved in creating the plan and are taking ownership over the actions that make sense for them. Instead of listing all who are involved, we would like to acknowledge the following key groups as early adopters to Safe at Home. There are many more who have been championing actions well before Safe at Home came to fruition and continue to do so who are not listed here. We see you and raise you up.

Partners

Since the Council of Yukon First Nations leadership table adopted Safe at Home as a territory-wide plan in late 2018, we continue to make connections with communities and governments outside of Whitehorse. The goal is not for Safe at Home to supersede community plans but to act as a useful model and support communities in ending and preventing homelessness. 

Whitehorse is one of 33 national learning communities leaning on BFZ-C’s support to end homelessness. Part of this initiative is the creation of a Coordinated Access System, which includes a By-Name List (BNL). The BNL is a real-time record of all people experiencing homelessness in a community. The Coordinated Access System allows organizations and agencies to streamline data collection, identify gaps and work together to provide responsive supports for Whitehorse’s homeless population, getting them housed and continuing to provide them with supports to maintain their housing.
