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!
 

2016-2019 Strategic Plan

In preparation for the development of a Strategic Plan, the New Westminster Homelessness Coalition Society (NWHCS) Coordinator worked together with Vantage Point to reach out to Board members and stakeholders to gather feedback on the historical successes of the coalition, past challenges, and the perceived purpose of the Society. On June 20th 2016 Vantage Point facilitated a focus group to discuss current opportunities for the coalition, the core purpose, and possible goals for the 2016 – 2019 period.
