Today, Mayor Bowman announced a new Voluntary Transport Protocol which helps vulnerable members of our community better access the supports they need. Please see comment from Rick Lees, Executive Director of Main Street Project:
“This protocol is an extension of Main Street Project’s longstanding and extensive partnership with WFPS,” said Rick Lees, Executive Director, Main Street Project. “We are highly invested in this voluntary transport protocol and in being a leader in providing quality care to our city’s most vulnerable. Main Street Project recently secured a specialized wheelchair accessible van in support of our own van patrol program, as well as this protocol, through funding provided by Homelessness Partnering Strategy. This specialized van ensures that our community members are transported with dignity, and in a manner that is safe and secure.”
Main Street Project is proud to be a principal partner in the Voluntary Transport Protocol and believes that by working closely with WFPS, The Downtown Winnipeg Biz, and Salvation Army our community members will be better served.
