Shawn Parker is our Street Navigator in downtown Dartmouth. As you can see from Shawn’s incredible smile that he’s a genuine person with a gift for helping others. Shawn spends his days reaching out to homeless and street-involved folks in our community. He says listening is his number one job, then connecting folks to what they need, moving obstacles out of the way when necessary. He says the biggest challenging in his work these days is finding people places to live – access to affordable housing is a crisis in HRM.
Shawn divides his time between downtown Dartmouth and North End Halifax.
