Honouring the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

On September 30th, Streetohome will observe the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation and become an active participant in the Reconciliation journey.

Knowing that Indigenous people are over-represented within Vancouver’s homeless population, we are committed to addressing the underlying structural causes of inequity by filling gaps within the homelessness services system, and brokering and leveraging new funding, innovative ideas, and opportunities to implement sustainable solutions.

We hope that you take the time to read and act on the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action; recognize the strength and resilience of Indigenous Peoples; explore their rich and diverse cultures, voices and stories; and continue to learn about the impacts of colonization.
