Delancey Street BC

Delancey Street is a highly structured 2-year live-in community model that provides a pathway towards personal empowerment for those exiting correctional facilities, and/or wishing to leave life on the streets behind. Community members engage in purposeful and meaningful activities that contribute to developing life skills and prosocial behaviours, achieving high school equivalency, and learning three marketable vocations.

Addiction Recovery Community Housing

Many people need to leave their home communities, where they have family, friends, and supports and move to a major city in order to find substance use treatment and continuing care. Facing a new and difficult system to navigate, long wait lists, and a lack of affordable housing, many fall through the cracks and out of the care system, off their recovery journey, and become at risk for homelessness. A better option may be accessing care in a familiar system, closer to home where they have a built-in support system.

Surrey & White Rock Life Intentions Action Planner

Streetohome is pleased to announce that we’ve developed a Surrey/White Rock edition of the Life Intentions Action Planner & Companion Guide to Services (LIAP) to meet the goal setting and service navigation needs of homeless populations.

Want2 App + Life Intentions Action Planner

Want2 helps individuals with unmet needs – including youth, adults, seniors, families, immigrants & refugees, LGBTQ2S+ and Indigenous – to prioritize their personal goals and find free resources that fit their unique needs and preferences. Want2 then empowers individuals to make plans that effectively meet their needs, one step at a time.

Streetohome releases Want2 app to help people navigate homelessness supports in Vancouver

Many individuals know what they’d like to focus on to improve their situations, but don’t know how to start or what supports are available to help them. Streetohome has developed a mobile and web app to build on the success of the original Life Intentions Action Planner paper tool, which helps individuals navigate Vancouver-based, free supports while reducing the stigma associated with homelessness.

A New Opportunity to Pursue Recovery

The clear sound of a singing bowl brings everyone’s attention to Damian Murphy, manager of the new Recovery Café pop-up located at 637 East Hastings Street in Vancouver. He asks for a moment of reflection and then proceeds with a few announcements before members come together to participate in the day’s workshops and recovery circle.

Recovery Café Vancouver

Streetohome is proud to partner with The Kettle Society (Vancouver) and the Recovery Café Network (Seattle) to bring a leading-edge recovery pathway to Vancouver – the Recovery Café. The Recovery Café is a place of belonging where people pursuing recovery – whether it’s from, poverty, homelessness, isolation, mental health challenges, trauma, unemployment, or substance use – can participate in an intentional community of mutual support and work towards their recovery goals.

Preventing Homelessness

Homelessness is often closer to home than we may think. “There are a lot of people out there who are literally one rent cheque away from being homeless,” says Alan Peretz, Partner at KPMG and Streetohome Board Member.

A Long-term Strategy to Provide Solutions to Homelessness

Streetohome began its journey in 2008, with Board Chair John McLernon leading the way. $32 million has been raised to leverage building supportive housing and implementing homelessness prevention initiatives over the last 10 years.
