Why doesn't the platform talk about shelters, transitional housing, and supportive housing?

We talk about transitional and supportive housing under the big umbrella of non-profit housing. All types are needed and non-profit housing should include all of these different types of housing based on need.

Emergency shelters will always be needed for people temporarily displaced due to emergencies like fire or flooding. Increasingly, shelters in Ottawa are focusing on building and operating supportive housing. With their expertise in providing supports and services to individuals experiencing homelessness, shelters are able to reallocate resources toward long-term solutions.
