The Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness Society ("ACEH") engages Indigenous voices to frame the questions and solutions to Aboriginal homelessness in Victoria, BC with goals to work more broadly and collaboratively across Vancouver Island. The work of the ACEH is centered on the voices of Aboriginal peoples who have shared their immediate needs, lived experiences, systemic and structural barriers, gaps in services, as well as their hopes, dreams, and perspectives on solutions. Within this context, the ACEH seeks to create a climate of love and care to help members of the Aboriginal Street Community to have cultural supports, connections, and housing stability. The role of the ACEH is critical because there is not an Indigenous led organization in Victoria nor on Vancouver Island that has Aboriginal homelessness as its focus.
We stand together to end homelessness.
