LCCAN Response to the Housing & Homelessness Blueprint: Lanark County and the Town of Smiths Falls Ten-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan 2014-2024

We are the Lanark County Community Action Network (LCCAN), a group of low-income community members who gather to discuss issues of importance to, and advocate on behalf of, our peers throughout Lanark County. While we can speak only for ourselves, we believe that we represent many others who are struggling to get by on a daily basis.
