vancouver HAW 2013 events schedule

The City of Vancouver has posted their official Homelessness Action Week (HAW) 2013 schedule full of great events taking place from October 12-20. From homeless connect events, to film screenings and panel discussions, art shows and neighbourhood tours, the week is full of great events. Check out the full list here. Streetohome will be featuring a selection of these and other HAW events throughout the next two weeks leading up to HAW. 

Our first featured event is Choice: The First Step Indoors, the premier of a locally-produced film featuring firsthand accounts of participants and their families as they move indoors, often for the first time in decades.

Presented by RainCity Housing, in partnership with the City of Vancouver, the film examines Vancouver’s Housing First and Assertive Community Treatment Team. After the film screening, the Vancouver Housing First Speaker’s Bureau will host a panel of individuals who will share their personal lived experience of moving indoors. The free event takes place at Cafe du Soliel (2096 Commercial Drive) on October 13, 2013 at 7 p.m.
