The Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness (the Coalition) was formed in 2008 with a mission to end homelessness in the capital region. The Coalition consists of local housing, health and social service providers; non-profit organizations; all levels of government; businesses; the faith community; people with a lived experience of homelessness (past or present); and members of the general public. This diverse membership, referred to as Coalition Stakeholders, come together to collectively address the needs of individuals experiencing homelessness in the capital region.
The Coalition’s activities centre around funding effectiveness, system effectiveness, inclusiveness, evidence-based reporting, and building capacity. As a backbone organization the Coalition facilitates information sharing, relationship building, and strategic planning to ensure the collective efforts of stakeholders are making the greatest possible difference.
