Event description
Sooke Homelessness Coalition Stakeholder Engagement On Saturday, October 16th and November 20th, 2021 from 9 AM to 4 PM

About this event

Please join us for a pair of workshop sessions featuring break-out groups and consensus decision-making processes leading to the creation of a three-year Strategic Community Plan to End Homelessness in the Sooke Region.

After establishing a clear vision, goals and targets, we will identify realistic outcomes and the phased steps required to achieve them. We will utilize the Sooke Homelessness Coalition's Terms of Reference Sooke Homelessness Coalition Terms of Reference and the Sooke Region Communities Health Network's 2021 report Amidst the Paradise: Homeless in the Sooke Region as foundational documents. The current Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness Community Plan to End Homelessness in the Capital Region will be a benchmark reference as we establish our own made-in-Sooke solutions.

The Sooke Homelessness Coalition (SHC) addresses the prevention and resolution of homelessness in the Sooke District and its vicinity, with a service delivery model centered in the District of Sooke that responds appropriately to the needs of individuals experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness.

Hosted by the Sooke Shelter Society and the Sooke Homelessness Coalition.
