STPS Crest


In response to the increase in social challenges, specifically in the downtown, a community team was created to identify solutions to these complex health related problems. This team is comprised of many stakeholders from different areas such as service providers and business owners. It is important to bring together community partners as no one service or Agency can solve the issues alone. A collaborative approach to address social issues such as poverty, addiction, homelessness and mental health is needed to enhance community safety and well being in the city.
