Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the New Westminster Homelessness Coalition Society. The members of the NWHCS envision a world where every individual experiences a socially just quality of life.

Our long-term mission is to collaborate, educate, and act to ensure access to healthy safe housing and supportive services in New Westminster.

The Coalition agreed to incorporate in January of 2012, and became a society on May 31, 2012, in order to better succeed in our long-term mission to help those in need in New Westminster. So, officially, we are now the New Westminster Homelessness Coalition Society or NWHCS.

We gratefully welcome your continued support.

Notes from Our Tenth Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who attended our tenth annual fundraiser. It was an action-packed evening. From the welcoming music of Blues Express, to the heartfelt notes of the New Westminster Community Choir, to the thoughtful remarks from our speakers Mayor Cote, professor Joseph Moore and I’s on the Street advocate Myke Germyn. Hope you got what you bid for at the silent auction!
