The City of Grande Prairie is currently seeking community feedback on the proposed Coordinated Care Campus as part of the overall Coordinated Care & Housing Strategy. This is not a shelter.

Project Overview

The Coordinated Care Campus is a proposed partnership between the City of Grande Prairie, other levels of government, and community service providers. The proposed project involves the repurposing of a hotel and conference centre, located at 12102 – 100 Street into a Coordinated Care Campus to provide office and programming space for social service organizations, on-site health care and community supportive housing units.

The location offers a unique opportunity for the Coordinated Care Campus to conveniently co-locate residents with service providers, food, recreation, programming, a designated Indigenous cultural space (smudging/prayer) and healthcare all within one site.

City departments such as Enforcement Services and Community Social Development will be relocating to the Coordinated Care Campus. Support services will be provided by Northreach Society, with the potential for other local NGO's to co-locate.

The Coordinated Care Campus model offers onsite client care with wrap around 24/7 supports, including security, to address varied levels of need related to mental health, physical health, and addiction. The program includes group programming, life skills training, and assistance in accessing additional services. Additionally, the site is designed to be conducive to social enterprise and employment opportunities for program participants. All programming components have a focus on a recovery-oriented system of care.

Community Engagement

Six (6) online engagement sessions were held June 2, 3 and 7 (3:00 pm and 6:30pm on each day) for residents to learn more about this project, ask questions of the project team and provide feedback. If you were unable to attend, we encourage you to reach out via email or by phone to obtain further information.

Background

The Community Advisory Board on Housing and Homelessness (CABH) recognizes that systemic challenges related to housing instability and/or availability exist in our City. To work towards positive change, investments from various levels of government are focusing on long term housing solutions and supports. The Coordinated Care Campus aligns with a collaborative approach to create a well coordinated system including supportive housing programming. This project is a significant component in our Coordinated Care & Housing Strategy which aims to deliver long term, viable and sustainable solutions.

The Coordinated Care & Housing Strategy is an inclusive strategy integrating various projects and programming efforts to address critical social needs and chronic homelessness in the City of Grande Prairie. This collaborative approach encompasses partnerships with various levels of government, local NGOs, and other social service organizations. Our Coordinated Care & Housing Strategy consists of the both City and NGOs programming and projects.
