The Supportive Housing Network (SHN) provides a forum for those agencies who provide resident supports in addition to housing. The role of SHN is to receive and disseminate information from the City, Ottawa Social Housing Network (OSHN), Alliance to End Homelessness (ATEH), special working groups and Advisory Committees, etc. to ensure SHN members are well informed of housing issues. Members will represent SHN on various tables such as but not exclusive to action or advocacy. In addition, SHN members will review and discuss issues that impact the current and future status of SHN agencies, determine opportunities for action and/or decision-making, and provide feedback to organizations and governments as appropriate.
