The Community Voice Mail provides free voice mail phone numbers to front line workers. The front line workers provide the free voice mail to people that have no constant, reliable form of communication, are homeless or in transition.
The Prince George Community Voice Mail Program is the second community in Canada to have this program.
The clients of the Community Voice Mail program express their personal views on the service.
The Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training funded this program with an additional $25,000 on February 17, 2017. See the full News Release Here.
