Saskatoon Community Caring Camp

An Open Letter from the Saskatoon Community Caring Camp

An initiative in Winnipeg has sparked the Saskatoon community members to start organizing a Community Caring Camp for the city’s Homeless. 

The Community Caring Camp in Saskatoon is implored to fill the gaps of the existing programs already filled to capacity with numbers lessened from  previous years due to funding and covid-19 restrictions 

To build the camp we are starting from scratch. The creators in Winnipeg, EJ and Eva Wilson Fontaine had Teepees and a tent they utilized in their business. 

Saskatoon Community Caring Camp’s main goals in the next few days are to find a centralized building with facilities to carry out the mission or access to land situated in the area most frequented by the Saskatoon homeless community.

Volunteers are the next step in ensuring success. Volunteer roles would include Security, firekeepers, elders and greeters who create a dignified, safe and welcoming environment. 

Thirdly is fulfilling the needs of the visitors to the camp. 

We appreciate all input, donations, volunteers and organizations who will support this initiative.
