What’s New

Homelessness Action Week 2019 takes place October 13-19 across metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

Across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, organizers are preparing for the annual Homelessness Action Week made possible by the region’s Council of Community Homelessness Tables.

The week will include Homeless Connect service fairs for people who are homeless, public events like film nights, and a public awareness campaign.

This year’s theme is “Housing is the difference. Community is the connection.

As in previous years, events are planned throughout the region, including Homeless Connect events for people who are homeless or insecurely housed. Find details of HAW events in municipalities across the region in the drop down menu under Homelessness Action Week.
