The 5th annual Homelessness Action Week is happening right now in Vancouver with the goal of increasing awareness about the issue, finding solutions, and taking action.

Actions that you can take include learning about the causes of homelessness, adding your voice to the discussion and call to action, and volunteering in the community.

Events this week include:

October 13th, 11:00am – 2:00pm
The Gathering Place (609 Helmcken St)
Event will provide services for the homeless including meals, hair cuts, foot care, basic medical care, bike repair and more.

October 14th, 1:00pm – 5:00 pm
Broadway Youth Resource Centre’s 11th Annual Open House (691 E Broadway)
The celebration coincides with Homelessness Action week so they are asking those attending to bring a non-perishable food item, or a pair of new socks.

October 15th, 10:00am – 3:00pm
Vancouver Homeless Connect (151 W Cordova St)
Event will provide services for the homeless including meals, hair cuts, foot care, basic medical care, bike repair and more.
