Makeshift camps in Red Deer’s parks and other green spaces pose a risk to health and safety for those who use them and for the community.
Housing and Homelessness
Everyone needs a place to live, but every individual and family has different needs, including people experiencing homelessness. In Red Deer, we aim to ensure a full range of housing options is available so that every citizen has a home that is safe, adequate, and above all, affordable.
Red Deer’s homeless population has limited options when it comes to use of washrooms, cleaning themselves up, doing laundry or storing their belongings.
The City administers funding from the federal and provincial governments for affordable housing and homelessness
Right now, there is no 24/7 shelter space in Red Deer with on-site support services that meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness in our city.
