DERAdvocacy Funding

The Law Foundation will be making a decision as to whether or not funding will be given to DERAdvocacy for another year. The decision will be taking place by the Board of Governors in the third week of June.

I was talking to a former resident of the DTES yesterday and she said that it would be a tragedy if DERAdvocacy folded.

DERAdvocacy and DERAHousing are two separate identities. The Law Foundation has been strictly overseeing the Advocacy unlike BC Housing with DERAHousing. Since the mandate of the Law Foundation is the public interest, any input from the public, DERA employees as they know exactly what their contributions have been, would influence its decision.
