Unpublished endorsement

"Beyond Shelters is a timely reminder of the importance of homeless shelters in the communities they serve. It is also an eloquent shout out to all governments that they needs to do more in supporting shelters and in creating healthy policy environments to drive down the number of homeless people in places like Fredericton, NB, where I live. My government (2006-10) introduced the first Housing and Homelessness Plan for the province but more, much more, needs to be done. Beyond Shelters helps to articulate the way forward."


Unpublished endorsement

"This book reveals how austerity measures introduced in the 1990's led to 235,000 people a year or more experiencing homelessness. More than this, it presents the thought and actions of a heroic group of shelter administrators, advocates and social innovators who not only prevented matters from getting even worse, but who have reshaped their organizations and influenced social policy to put us on the path towards ending homelessness altogether."
