Grants for vul­ner­a­ble adults needed

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Cru­cial $12.5 M will sup­port the vul­ner­a­ble (June 22) Cer­tainly, the $12.5 million pro­vin­cial fund­ing an­nounce­ment for im­proved ac­cess to ser­vices for vul­ner­a­ble adults was a pos­i­tive and strong ad­vance in the right di­rec­tion. The need is cer­tainly there. Ur­gent hous­ing re­quire­ments and the care­ful co-or­di­na­tion of vul­ner­a­ble adults with ser­vices and pro­grams are crit­i­cal pri­or­i­ties. How­ever, the hu­man face that un­der­scores these needs and haunts any car­ing per­son be­longs to Guy Mitchell. He should never have died, nor should he have lived in such ter­ri­ble con­di­tions. It must not hap­pen again.

Frank Buchar, Hamil­ton
