CREATING RURAL CONNECTIONS 2015
Rural Homelessness is real: what can we do about it?

May 26-27, 2015 Executive Royal Inn, Leduc Alberta

ARDN is hosting the Creating Rural Connections 2015 (CRC 2015) conference. This event will focus on issues surrounding rural homelessness and its relevance to Albertans, and provide opportunities for participants and presenters to learn, network, share expertise, and collaborate on innovative approaches that contribute to the quality of life in rural Alberta.

We believe that exploring and addressing the challenges facing Alberta’s rural homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless is an important step toward developing a better understanding of homelessness in rural Alberta communities and enhancing the quality of life of all rural Albertans.
