Homelessness Action Week 2013

Homelessness Action Week event

The City of Vancouver joins communities and organizations throughout the region to mark Homelessness Action Week from October 13 to 19. 

What the week is about

Homelessness Action Week is organized by the Greater Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness. The committee is a coalition of community organizations and all levels of government.

The week’s purpose is to raise public awareness on the issues of homelessness, and rally local solutions to the issues.
