Five features on Coalition’s website victoriahomelessness.ca you may not have known about:
1. In the News
Finding it hard to keep up with the latest news, current events and reports related to homelessness and poverty issues in the Capital Region? We’ve put them all together for you.
We do our best to keep it as up to date as possible. We’ve even added a handy feature so you can receive the updates directly to your inbox.
Just hit the orange button at the top of the In the News page and select “Get In the News delivered by email” and they will arrive as they happen!
We have a calendar of event on victoriahomelessness.ca featuring Coalition, member and partner events going on in our community.
It’s shockingly empty right now, but we’d love to fill it up! If you know of an event related to homelessness issues please submit it – and check back often to see what’s going on in our community.
Our Meals & Food section of the website is a wealth of information. Here’s what it has:
- Food in Greater Victoria PDF (2 pgs) – a chart featuring the free meals and food banks offered around, Great at-a-glance resource.
- Food in Greater Victoria PDF (4 pgs) – a text version of the chart above. We created this version based on the feedback of clients (i.e. increased readability).
- Daily Breakdown – A day-by-day web agenda of the meals available in Greater Victoria.
- List of Food Banks – A list of the eight food banks in the region and the requirements to access them.
