The North Shore Homelessness Task Force Work Plan will assist the Task Force to fulfill its vision of a North Shore without homelessness.
Homelessness and the risk of becoming homeless continue to be a reality for people on the North Shore (the geographic area encompassed by the City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, and the District of West Vancouver). Tackling homelessness is something that can only be done successfully if all sectors of the community are involved – all levels of government, business, non-profit services, and citizens.
The purpose of the North Shore Homelessness Work Plan 2008-2018 is to provide the North Shore Homelessness Task Force with a coordinated, partnership-based approach to addressing the issues related to eliminating and preventing homelessness on the North Shore. It complements the 2003 Regional Homelessness Plan (RHP) of the Greater Vancouver Regional
Steering Committee on Homelessness and establishes goals for assisting the homeless on the North Shore based on local needs. It also recognizes and builds upon the services and facilities that already exist in the community to help and support those who find themselves without a place to live or who are at risk of becoming homeless.
The work plan serves as a road map, assisting the Task Force in helping people find stable, permanent housing solutions.
