Following Jasper Place Wellness Centre as they aim to bring innovation to the affordable housing crisis in Edmonton.
Over 20,000 people experience some form of homelessness in Edmonton, AB. This summer, that problem was placed in a pressure cooker as the pandemic forced thousands of those people out of shelters and into a socially distanced, community run camp in the river valley. Now, winter is looming on the horizon, in one of the coldest cities on the continent. Gathering Storm is the story of a small community organization called Jasper Place, and their journey to change the face of affordable housing in a moment when it’s never mattered more. It’s about a group of people trying to maintain the humanity of our most vulnerable populations during the most turbulent time in recent history. It’s about compassion in the face of chaos.
