Homelessness is not a choice. Support shelters and housing programs.
The skyrocketing cost of rent, job loss, and social issues have created a homelessness crisis in Vancouver. Of more than 2,100 Canadians experiencing homelessness in the city, 40% of Vancouver’s homeless population identify as Indigenous, and 49% are facing chronic homelessness.1 Since COVID-19 increased unemployment rates, the homelessness crisis worsened and social services aren’t coming fast enough.
It’s time to eliminate homelessness once and for all. Both short-term and long-term strategies are needed. Charities in Vancouver are addressing the homelessness crisis with a variety of initiatives. Some provide immediate relief to those experiencing homelessness, while others address the underlying issues contributing to the crisis. These efforts include emergency shelters, transitional housing, affordable housing for seniors, advocacy efforts, and more.
No one should ever have to experience homelessness. It’s up to us to ensure safe refuge and housing for all.
