Award recognizes excellence
CLBC’s North Region was recognized with a 2011 Excellence in Public Service Delivery Team Award for its work on the BC Government’s Homelessness Intervention Project (HIP). The Award, presented by the Public Sector Service Delivery Council (PSSDC), recognizes “significant contribution to the promotion of, and commitment to, excellence in public service delivery.”
The HIP was implemented in March 2009 with the goal to create single integrated outreach teams in communities to better address the needs of the chronically homeless. The foundation of the project is a coordinated, client-centred approach that involved partnering with key community stakeholders and drawing on the unique mix of services in each community.
“The Homelessness Intervention Project is truly innovative and exemplifies the purpose of the Excellence Award which is to recognize a group within the Canadian public sector who has truly risen to the challenges of outstanding Public Service delivery,” said PSSDC co-chairs Nancy MacLellan and Kevin Doyle.
