- People with medical issues
- People affected by pest infestations
- People who struggle with excessive clutter/excessive filth
In early 2012, a meeting was called by Terry Colborne of Sarnia Fire and Tracy King of Housing Services to address some recurring issues that were being identified in our community in relation to excessive clutter, excessive filth and vulnerable tenants. By mid-2012, Big Group meetings were held with many community agencies to determine gaps and how to move forward as a community to better respond to emerging issues.
The Collaborative does not have an office, a phone number or paid staff – but a group a dedicated professionals who continue to reach out to each other to support persons who are vulnerable in our community.
