An exciting community event is coming to Saskatoon on May 4, 2015 and we would love to get as many of our Connect family involved as possible.   The Saskatoon community is excited to host the first annual “YXE People Connect” event. This is an event that brings together community agencies, companies, and service providers  to deliver housing supports, health care, and services to those who may be facing housing instability, homelessness or  who may be at risk of homelessness. 

We would like to be able to provide the following services to those who attend the event:

 

  • Support for Indigenous Peoples
  • Addiction & Mental Health Supports
  • Bicycle Repairs

Similar events are held across the country and are considered a one-stop shop for vulnerable members of our community to access services in one place, on one day. Saskatoon’s YXE Connect is organized by a group of individuals who represent the following organizations: City Centre Church, Connect Church YXE, The Lighthouse, Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre, Saskatoon Housing Initiatives Partnership, Saskatoon Health Region, Saskatoon Regional Intersectoral Committee, and United Way of Saskatoon & Area.
