What is the Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS)?
The Homelessness Partnering Strategy, also known as HPS, is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness by providing direct support and funding to 61 designated communities across Canada.
The YMCA of Regina was awarded the role of Community Entity for the HPS program in June 2012. The YMCA is now responsible for administering the HPS program to the community of Regina for both the Designated Communities Funding Stream and the Aboriginal Homelessness funding stream. The YMCA works closely with the Regina Homelessness Community Advisory Board, or RHCAB. RHCAB is made up of various community members, non profit employees, private sector workers and standing Government representatives, and is responsible for all funding decsions. They work closely with the YMCA, recommending projects for funding under the HPS program, working to move towards the goal of preventing and reducing homelessness in the community of Regina.
