In the recent past, issues relating to the Homeless, the near Homeless, and those who help the Homeless are gaining more and more attention. We think deservedly so. It is the expectation of the Consolidation for Social Awareness and Responsibility (CSAR) that the more quality attention such issues receive, the more hope there is for comprehensive solutions. It is also the expectation of CSAR that certain issues have merits which automatically raise them above all conventional operational distinctions (vocation, geography, politics, race, religion, colour, ethnicity etc.) and that Homelessness is one of them.
Canadians have an established record for creative solutions with respect to their challenges - many of which have evolved to be useful to the global community. CSAR expects that Homelessness is another such opportunity. We are not simply interested in providing short-term “handouts” for the less fortunate. We would strive to also support authentically motivated remedial research/measures - not just a hand out but a hand up.
Ms. Golden, we are heartened that Mayor Lastman has asked you to spearhead Toronto’s efforts with respect to this selfless cause. We hope that your energies, influence, and wisdom are put to great use on behalf of the homeless, the near homeless, and those who are dedicated to helping the homeless. Surely with your networking opportunities you can access resources of time, treasures, and talent ( individually and collectively ) that could help make a lasting difference.
Congratulations and very best wishes.
