LTN: How to Develop a Strategic Plan
November 22, 2017 · 1:00 pm · 4:00 pm
MacMillan Boardroom, CMHA Building (220 2nd Avenue, Timmins, Ontario)
A Strategic Plan is the formalized road map that describes how your organization executes its operations; it spells out where your organization is going over the next year or more and how it is going to get there. It can be focused on the organization as a whole, or on a specific department or program. A Strategic Plan helps to focus the energy, resources and time of everyone within the organization to work in the same direction.

Workshop will:
• Demystify and explain the key elements of Strategic Planning.
• Provide insight on the types of plans.
• Discuss the value of the participatory approach to Strategic Planning.
• Assess your organization’s readiness, commitment and capacity for planning.
• Introduce strategic planning tools, techniques and resources.

Who should attend?
Board members and staff of organizations who would like to:
• Gain insight on Strategic Planning.
• Improve their organization’s performance.
• Increase stakeholders’ / members’ commitment.
• Decrease time spent on crisis management.
• Access more resources.

Summit for Solving Homelessness by Living Space
September 27, 2017 · 8:00 am -
September 28, 2017 · 5:00 pm
Northern College
You are invited to attend Summit for Solving Homelessness, by Living Space, in Timmins, Ontario on September 27 & 28th, 2017. This Summit is part of an effort to develop a coordinated homelessness service system to meet the unique needs of our northern communities.

The most current enumeration study conducted by Laurentian University: Centre for Research in Social Justice and Policy titled “Homelessness in Timmins, January 2011 Final Report” found more than 700 people who are homeless in the City of Timmins with similar, proportionate levels of homelessness documented in other northern municipalities. Timmins has a population of over 41,000 people and is located in north eastern Ontario where harsh winter weather for five to six months of the year with temperatures falling below -30 degrees Celsius, is common. Despite these conditions, few resources exist to prevent and respond to homelessness.

Living Space endeavours to coordinate community resources to alleviate, prevent, and eventually end homelessness. Please join us to learn more and find your role in ending homelessness.

Vous êtes invité à assister à Vivre à l’abri: Congrès pour mettre fin à l'itinérance à Timmins, en Ontario, les 27 et 28 septembre 2017. Ce congrès fait partie d'un effort visant à mettre au point un système de services multisectoriels et afin de répondre aux besoins uniques des communautés du nord.

**Deadline to Register is September 25th**

La plus récente étude de dénombrement , menée par le Centre de recherche en justice sociale et politique de l’Université Laurentienne et intitulée «L'itinérance à Timmins, rapport final de janvier 2011», a trouvé plus de 700 personnes vivent sans-abri à Timmins. Cette ville d'environ 43 000 personnes est située dans le nord-est de l'Ontario et endure des hivers difficiles, où durant cinq à six mois la température tombe souvent en-dessous de -30 degrés Celsius. Malgré ces conditions, il existe peu de ressources pour prévenir et répondre à l'itinérance.

Vivre à l’abri s'efforce à coordonner les ressources communautaires qui atténuent et empêchent l'itinérance dans la ville de Timmins. Joignez-vous à nous pour éradiquer l’itinérance.
