Coalition to End Homelessness

In 2007, a Mayor's Task Force was convened to address homelessness, addictions and mental illness.

The result of the 120 day Task Force was the formation of the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness.

The Coalition is a community-based partnership of service providers in the non-profit and public sectors, advocates, business representatives and elected municipal officials, formed in February 2008 to lead the region's commitment to end homelessness. As of June, 2008, 400 people have been housed throughout the Capital Region with appropriate supports, through the collective efforts of Coalition member agencies.
