Boyle Street Community Services was contracted by the REACH Edmonton Council for Safe Communities to prepare a report on panhandlers and their needs. The survey’s purpose was to provide intelligence about panhandlers, including:

Demographic information

The reasons why they were on the street/or why they were panhandling.

Their principal needs, including basic necessities, housing, employment, addictions, etc.

Interventions which would be most helpful; understanding which services individuals might already use and what might be beneficial to them to increase stability and reduce or prevent panhandling.

Conditions/situations of panhandlers, such as disabilities, etc.
