New York based Becky Kanis, co-founder of the 100,000 Homes Campaign in the US, will be in Brisbane for the next few days sharing her experience in tackling the problems of homelessness in our society and reporting on the positive outcomes being achieved in the US.
Ms Kanis is here at the invitation of West End’s Micah Projects and among other engagements she will be conducting a free public forum in Woolloongabba this Monday night.
According to Karyn Walsh, Coordinator of Micah Projects, Becky helped to launch the successful 50 Lives 50 Homes Campaign in Brisbane in 2010, based on her US experience.
“A total of 671 people have now been surveyed with the Vulnerability Index about their housing, healthcare and support service needs,” said Karyn. “223 people have now been housed and 190 people are supported by the 50 Lives 50 Homes campaign partners.
“Becky is an inspirational speaker, and her passionate commitment to ending homelessness shines through her every word,” said Karyn.
