The National Homelessness Initiative began in Prince George in February 2001. Now referred to as Phase 1 of the initiative, it commenced with Prince George service providers, agencies, non-profit organizations, and government ministries and departments at the municipal, provincial and federal level agreeing to work together in a group named the Community Partners Addressing Homelessness (CPAH). This collaboration saw combining of the expertise and knowledge of their members along with the results of community consultations and focus groups with service providers, agencies, and service consumers in Prince George. The result cumulated in the Community Plan on Homelessness released in September 2001.
