The City of Grande Prairie is looking for a new service provider for the Coordinated Care Campus after being notified by Northreach Society that it plans to step away from supportive housing and focus its resources on healthcare support for the city’s most vulnerable. Northreach is set to step away from the campus come June.
Grande Prairie Mayor Jackie Clayton is thanking the organisation for its service and care for the most vulnerable in the community.
“Northreach Society has been a qualified and committed partner in the development of the Coordinated Care Campus, and we have been pleased to work alongside them to provide innovative solutions to lessen the impacts of homelessness and ultimately save lives.”
Northreach Society Executive Director Dalyce Sather-McNabb commends the city on its efforts of involving organizations in their housing solution.
“Although the scope of Northreach Society is set to change, our new direction will continue to see us working alongside the City in administering support and providing health services to the clients of the Coordinated Care Campus.”
The city and Northreach say they will be implementing measures to ensure clients of the Coordinated Care Campus continue to receive quality service. The city has issued a Request for Proposal process to find a new service provider to work with the existing Coordinated Care Campus staff.
Interested organizations have until May 8th to submit their proposal to City’s Bids and Tenders website. The city says it does not anticipate interruptions due to the change in service providers.
