The Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) works collaboratively with the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness to create a culturally-specific approach to Aboriginal (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) homelessness on the traditional Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwaka’wakw territories. Evan James designed our logo (pictured top-right); a representation of our work, symbolized by the Coast Salish Big House. The four posts of the Big House are the foundation and the strategies that guide us:
ACEH is an island-wide coalition that creates a space for the voices of Aboriginal community members who are experiencing homelessness. We are committed to ending Aboriginal homelessness on our traditional territories.
Our way is to care for all of our people, from the youngest to the oldest. We are all one. Some of our people living away from home are suffering, isolated, and experiencing homelessness. We stand together to end homelessness.
