About Us

Our Vision:

A world where every individual experiences a socially just quality of life.

Our Mission:

To collaborate, educate, and act to ensure access to healthy safe housing and supportive services in New Westminster.

History:

The New Westminster Homelessness Coalition was formed in 2005 to bring together a range of people and organizations working to address homelessness in New Westminster. The Coalition incorporated in January 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. In 2016, we updated our strategic plan to address homeless issues more effectively. 

The NWHCS now includes members representing service providers, community-based organizations and all levels of government. The coalition is funded by the City of New Westminster and private donors.

Our member organizations deliver housing, outreach, food, job training, crisis intervention, financial assistance and youth programs, and witness first-hand the day to day challenges of poverty and homelessness in our city. We continue to work on addressing the needs of the homeless in New Westminster; enabling many people to permanently break the cycle of homelessness.

In May 2019, the NWHCS was successful in securing City of New Westminster funding to support the implementation of the New Westminster Food Security Action Plan. We are excited for the year ahead and the potential this project has to increase the profile of local food security issues which are so intricately linked to poverty and homelessness. 

Through our strategic alliances and ongoing efforts to increase community awareness through events such as Homelessness Action Week (HAW) and our annual fundraiser, we believe we can make homelessness a thing of the past. We thank our members and partners for their hard work and dedication and look forward to working together for another powerful year.
