Only Moving Up Saskatoon was created three years ago to operate as a local business that is exclusively designed as an employment initiative to provide work for those that struggle to find employment due to various barriers such as no permanent address, limited education and job training.
Not only do we provide employment, we also hep individuals with things like transportation to and from work, apply for banking, replace identification, apply for housing. Just the basic stuff. Yet absolutely needed and often limited resources for those that need it the most.
While the provincial and federal governments discuss affordable housing and spend millions of tax payers dollars trying to fix a broken system, they continue to miss many key factors. While affordable housing is very much needed, what are they doing to help make it possible for many individuals to AFFORD the affordable housing?
There is still many who struggle to find employment opportunities, and we have seen no programs designed to help focus on those individuals. So we have moved forward on our own to help who we can, one person at a time.
