The Rotary Club of Sarnia is hosting a special screening of the film “Safe” by Hamilton-based filmmaker John Butler.
The film showcases several supportive housing communities in southwestern Ontario run by a charitable organization called Indwell. Through interviews with residents, support workers and builders/designers, the film explores a success story that’s giving people hope.
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about supportive housing options and foster public discussion. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local  leaders including Valerie Colasanti (General Manager, Social Services Division, County of Lambton), Scott Brush (Program Launch Manager for Indwell, Chatham-Kent), Jim Steele (previously Manager of Social Housing, Windsor) and Heather Martin (Wellington Ridge, Sarnia).
