 Contexte

Homelessness has become a growing issue in our region. The high cost of housing is a contributing factor, but people become homeless through a variety of factors including family breakup, violence, physical disability, mental health and addictions. Metro Vancouver has supported the Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness since it was established in 2000 to work on regional data and solutions, establish priorities and recommend projects to be funded through federal homelessness programs. in 2011, Metro Vancouver took administrative and managerial responsibility for the delivery of the Federal Homelessness Partnering Strategy fund for the Metro Vancouver Region, with the Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness serving as the Community Advisory Board.

The Greater Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness (RSCH) is a coalition of community organizations and all levels of government. We believe that by working together, we can end homelessness in the Metro Vancouver area. Our work is guided by the Committee’s Regional Homelessness Plan: Three Ways to Home.

       2. Recommending projects for funding under the Homelessness Partnering Strategy
       3. Developing a regional understanding of homelessness.
