Alliance to End Homelessness in Capital Region

À propos

In May 2007, then Victoria Mayor Alan Lowe struck a 120-day task force to recommend a service model and business plan that would provide better assistance to residents challenged with mental illness, addictions and homelessness.

The Mayor’s Task Force was charged with breaking down the issue of homelessness in Greater Victoria and developing a new service delivery model that would be a substantial shift in the way we all respond to our community’s social and health challenges. It became apparent that Greater Victoria needed a community-owned solution to end homelessness for its residents. As a result of this thorough work, the community rallied and the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness Society was formed in February 2008.

The Coalition was registered as a Society in BC on July 25, 2008 and obtained Charitable Tax Status April 1, 2009.

In 2022 the Coalition's Board of Directors passed a resolution at it's AGM to re-brand the organization and operate as the Alliance to End Homelessness in the Capital Region (AEHCR). Legally we are still the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness.

The AEHCR consists of local housing, health & social service providers, non-profit organizations, all levels of government, businesses, post-secondary institutions, faith communities, and people with lived & living experiences of homelessness, and members of the general public.

This diverse network, referred to as the Alliance Partners, comes together to strive toward our vision:

"A region, a province and a country where everyone has a safe place they can call home."

And fulfill our mission:

To ensure experiences of homelessness in the Capital Region by 2030 are rare, brief, and non-recurring and that housing and supports are culturally adaptive, creative, caring, and person-centered.
