Streetohome’s focus is to invest in projects that increase the affordable, supportive housing supply in Vancouver, and provide an environment that will improve the quality of life for residents. There are three key populations in Vancouver who are in the greatest need for permanent housing: chronically homeless adults, youth, and mothers with children.
