At a neighbourhood meeting, local churches are asked what they’re doing about increasing homelessness in their neighbourhood. The short answer: not much.
That provocative question got members of Vancouver’s Grandview Church thinking—and acting—in response to the needs in the community surrounding their church building. Years later, after a variety of experiments in housing and economic development, Co:Here was born.
In this episode we hear from Jeanette Moss, Director of Strategy and Development for the Salsbury Community Society. A lot has happened to transform a former church parking lot into a brave community space.
Jeanette takes us on an inspirational journey, and challenges faith communities everywhere to engage in coordinated responses to the needs around us.
