The Kettle’s Homeless Outreach Program
Individuals sleeping on the streets are especially vulnerable. BC Housing partners with community-based agencies, such as The Kettle Society to reach out to individuals who find themselves homeless.
Kettle outreach workers work specifically in Vancouver’s Grandview-Woodlands neighbourhood and undertake a wide range of client-centred support activities:
- - Address immediate physical and safety needs, such as food, warm clothing and a place to stay;
- - Connect people with housing and income support, including making and accompanying them to appointments;
- - Provide links to other support services, such as life skills training, personal health, household and financial management;
- - In some cases, act as a landlord liaison.
