*The Aboriginal Homeless Outreach Program targets communities with a high Aboriginal homeless population where there are identified gaps in support services. Information from the Comprehensive Needs and Capacity Assessment of Aboriginal Housing in British Columbia was used to help determine which communities would benefit most from Aboriginal outreach services.
What kind of help can I get?
Your outreach worker will start the process of addressing immediate physical and safety needs:
- Food, warm clothing and a place to stay.
- Connecting you with housing and income support, including making and accompanying you to appointments.
- Providing links to culturally appropriate services and other support services, such as life skills training, personal health, household and financial management; and/or acting as a landlord liaison.
