The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board has chosen Lakehead University’s Dr. Rebecca Schiff, Chair/Professor of the Department of Health Sciences, to serve on the Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI) Advisory Table.

The purpose of the CHPI Advisory Table is to review current Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative programs and funding commitments, and to identify new opportunities for consideration to assist TBDSSAB in meeting its strategic priorities, which will broaden engagement and participation of its rural and urban partners and stakeholders.

Dr. Schiff will serve on the advisory table until December 2023. Her research has brought much needed attention to homelessness in rural and remote communities during COVID-19.
