See yourself as a partner - Guide to Community Partnership Development: Acknowledgements
The creation of this toolkit has been a collective effort. We would like to begin by acknowledging the work done by the members of the advisory committee, without whom this guide would not be so thoroughly grounded in the realities of the organizations that work directly with people experiencing homeless. Sincere thanks to:
- Sara Peddle, Executive Director, The David Busby Centre and Simcoe County Alliance to End Homelessness (Barrie, Ontario)
- Sheldon Pollett, Executive Director, Choices for Youth (St John’s, Newfoundland)
- Marc Provost, Executive Director, Salvation Army (Ottawa, Ontario)
- Wally Czech, Housing First Specialist, City of Lethbridge (Lethbridge, Alberta)
for their enthusiasm regarding this project, their willingness to share their experiences and their sound advice.
Thanks also to Mary-Jane McKitterick, Community Planning Manager for A Way Home, Bruce Pearce, Community Development worker for End Homelessness St. John’s, and Dawn Vickers Family and Community Support Services Coordinator, Community and Social Development, City of Lethbridge for contributing to this project by sharing their expertise, tools and advice on community partnership development.
Finally, the Homelessness Partnering Strategy would also like to thank the professionals at the Innovation Lab, Employment and Social Development Canada, for facilitating the day of discussion that led to the co-creation of this toolkit and Dr. Nathalie Burlone, from the University of Ottawa, for accepting to partner on this project. Following a full day of facilitated discussions at the Innovation Lab, Dr. Burlone held one-on-one discussions with advisory committee members and translated their collective and individual wisdom into writing. The content of this toolkit is in large part informed by these group and individual discussions.
