Testimonials:

“Our firm is located in the Whyte Avenue area and so we often cross paths with unhoused members of our community. The training offered by Boyle Street offered practical harm-reduction strategies and tools for respectful and collaborative interactions in these situations.” -Chivers Carpenter Lawyers, 2021.

"Boyle Street's Lunch & Learn webinar was informative, engaging, and personal. Encouraging interaction with the attendees and having people open up about their lived experiences enhanced the event greatly." -Edmonton Social Planning Council, 2021.
