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 incorporated 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.
Today folks with lived/living experience in homelessness, or are concerned about becoming homeless, are encouraged to visit Hyack Square (Columbia and 8th) from 1:00 to 2:30 and Holy Trinity (Carnarvon just east of 6th St.) from 4:00 to 5:30 to have your voices heard. Coffee, snacks, food (HTC), giveaways will be available.
NEW: Coat Drive on Thursday. New/gently used coats will be received and distributed. Details are on the poster.
