Habitat for Humanity Edmonton is holding the Third Annual Interfaith Works Project in conjunction with the Capital Region Interfaith Housing Initiative.

Interfaith Housing Initiative

A renewed commitment to Edmonton’s 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness is only meaningful if put into action, Bishop Jane Alexander told an assembly of the Capital Region Interfaith Housing Initiative in November. “This isn’t just a photo-op. If you’re not planning to do something, don’t sign [the Interfaith Statement],” the leader of the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton and co-chair of the Mayor’s End Poverty Edmonton Task Force told a gathering of faith leaders, civic officials and community members at Edmonton City Hall.
