Prince George Metis Housing Society
The Community Voice Mail program distributes free voice mail phone numbers to people who do not have a constant, reliable form of contact. The program keeps the lines of communication open between housing providers, social services, health care, mental health care and other support services. Without the Community Voice Mail people have the potential to lose out on opportunities to connect with the support services. In an ongoing effort to maintain basic human necessities and to prevent an increase in the homeless population, the Community Voice Mail connects to the great services in the community. The Community Voice Mail works to improve the self-sufficiency of homeless individuals and families and those at imminent risk of homelessness through individualized services.
