Creating a system-wide response
to address homelessness

Streetohome’s overarching goal is to leverage a comprehensive system response intended to ensure that homelessness in Vancouver is prevented whenever possible and, when homelessness can’t be prevented, to ensure that the experience is least harmful, brief and non-recurring. To this end, Streetohome strives to broker the integration of evidence-based and promising practices that address gaps in the current system to meet the housing; employment & volunteering; education, skills & training; health & wellness; legal & advocacy; and community & belonging needs of vulnerable individuals that are homeless, at-risk of homelessness, or have lived experience of homelessness.

Leading the Way

The Streetohome Board and Board Committees are comprised of community leaders from the private, public and non-profit sectors. There are over 150 volunteers behind Streetohome’s success.
