Everyone should have a home. It’s what is right, and what our community wants. Streetohome Foundation came to life in 2008 as a partnership between Vancouver Foundation, the City of Vancouver and the Province of British Columbia.
We are dedicated to finding solutions for homelessness in Vancouver by helping create safe, decent, affordable housing for those on the streets and those at risk in our city. Our role is to work with our community to increase permanent, supportive housing and create social change that will help prevent homelessness and improve quality of life. We are not a housing provider, though we provide funding support to organizations that do build and operate housing programs.
Our work is based on similar models that have successfully reduced homelessness in other cities such as Calgary, Toronto, Portland and New York.
